Load Runner #3 July 21-August 3 1983

Back in the early 1980s, I was in England for a while--more on that in another post. The main thing is that I managed to pick up a bunch of British comics, some of which I still have. One of these is Load Runner #3, from July 1983. Among other things, this was the time of the microcomputer boom, affordable home computers that sold like hotcakes. Naturally, the folks at ECC Publications saw a market for a comic of stories all tangentially related to computers in some way.

I don't know enough about the British publishing industry to know if this is an orphaned publication, though reprints seem unlikely. So the following scans comply as much as possible with the one-third rule.

Your thoughts? Amusing stories about your first microcomputer?
