Spider Attack!

Following on directly from the cover, this strip appears to be called ‘Load Runner’ (must’ve taken hours to come up with that one…). Load Runner and Petra are trapped a cocoon of silk produced by a terrifying giant spider. Luckily their giant fluffy companion [Q*Bert perhaps?) comes to the rescue.

I particularly like the inset image from the 'real' computer game - it seems to be some sort of Space Panic clone.

  1. The game’s actually ‘Horace and the Spiders’ for the Spectrum – I think their horrible giant furry friend is supposed to be Horace himself, the poorly drawn one-armed green …thing… that starred in a series of early Spectrum games.
