Liz Hodgkinson's article for the Oldie gives an excellent introduction to Girl.


Many of the team at Girl also contributed to Eagle. The illustrators and writers of Girl were also involved in wide range of other interesting projects from TV and animation to charitable work. The influence of this talented group of individuals needs more space than I have available here. A separate feature on the artists and writers of Girl and Eagle with their links to other Pepys games, will follow in due course.
