Despite its comparatively short run, Misty is very well remembered for its unusual tone and the quality of its stories: unlike most girls' comics at the time, Misty had an underlying theme — the supernatural — and some of the stories were genuinely spooky. The comic was 'hosted' by Misty herself, a mysterious girl who dwelled in the 'Cavern of Dreams' next to a strange pool.
Misty Holiday Specials appeared in 1978, 1979 and 1980, and the Misty Annual was published from 1979 to 1986. In addition, from February to September 1986, a Best of Misty reprint title appeared, running a total of eight issues. Egmont published a 'Special Souvenir Issue' of Misty in 2009, the fourth and last of a series of specials published during the course of the year (the others being Battle, Roy of the Rovers and Buster). Two fan-produced Misty Halloween Specials were published, in 2006 and 2009, by Mistycomic.co.uk, featuring specially produced new material. Rebellion began reprinting selected stories from Misty in 2016, with a collected edition of the serials Moonchild and The Four Faces of Eve. In 2017, they published a Scream! & Misty Special featuring all new material, as well as a second collected eition featuring The Sentinels and End of the Line.
