My Move - You Die!

I picked up this for 20p. in a junk shop.

The Eagle

The Eagle comic from October 1982.

Inside is a chess story portrayed using pictures and voice bubbles.

Here it is….(I've left out a dozen pictures but you will get the drift of it.)

Title here

The played by phone and every game ended in a draw.

Title here

Marvin King’s wife was fed up with him playing chess all day.

Title here

and….

Title here

…a fierce argument erupted.

Title here

The argument put Marvin off his game and he blundered into a lost game.

Title here

But before the game could finish Marvin had a heart attack and died.

Title here

Peter King cannot believe it.

Title here

So Peter finds a medium, Madame Valda, to contact Marvin so he can finish the game....

Title here

....and Marvin duly appears…

Title here

…and gives Peter a warning.

Title here

Marvin takes over the medium’s body and she…

Title here

….kills Peter.

Title here

and the punch line.

Title here

The End

    Just lost my Queen to a Knight fork on f3 - g2 pawn pinned to the King, just retreated my Bishop from e2 to f1 to defend the g-pawn. Blundertastic!

    Posted this just a few days after my chess one.
    Did look to see if RHP Had a Peter Playing a Marvin. None.
    Just decided this without a game was a nice piece of mild relief.

    As long as you guys keep blundering (including me) then I'll always have the inspiration.
