When the Green Mist Came was a science fiction story that ran in the pages of Wizard from the issues cover dated 10th March 1973 to 9th June 1973. It was a rather odd alien invasion story about a corpulent alien called the Overlord attempting to conquer Earth by subjugating the Fenland village of Wimbling with a sinister green mist which bent all who inhaled it to his will. How, precisely, he intended to take over the planet from a small English village is unclear, but in any case he was quickly thwarted by young Hub Hodson and his science teacher, 'Specs' Memery. Guided back into Wimbling by Hub and Specs, the Overlord's former slave Colonel Hepple apparently blew both himself and the Overlord to smithereens with a hand grenade as the Overlord's ship took off. That showed the bounder! It almost goes without saying that the artist on this strip was the late, great Ian Kennedy.
