Presumably if the last pre-Strike issue of Pink doesn't have "Great News For All Readers Inside" on it, that would be a good sign it was the one!

I've looked for more info in Steve McManus's memoirs, and he mentions both strikes on pages 141-142 and 210, but he doesn't say anything about a comic being cancelled unfortunately.

My goodness, those cover straplines for Pink don't sit well for a 2020 audience of any age.
