In the summer of 1981 Carrie took a short holiday. Fortunately for him it coincided with Carrie's artist, Steve Kingston, having to spend time on other assignments (yes incredible though it sounds, the guy actually paints subjects other than nubile young girls in a state of undress - he must be some kind of weirdo.) In place of the usual Carrie strip Ken Bounds commissioned Brian Forbes to draw a series of stories about Carrie's cousin Connie. Fortunately Connie proved to be every bit as accident prone as her cousin.
Connie's adventures (and her legs) were spread over five months from March through to July, and although she never quite made it into the same class as Carrie it was fun watching her try.
Forbes was the original artist for the character 'Wicked Wanda' in the days when her adventures were mainly textual and he was a semi-regular contributor to Mayfair and over the years provided some excellent themed collections of cartoons and a great number of full page delights.
