Mystery of Marsdon Manor Part 4

I think one reason I like this story is that it is one of the first comic stories I tried to read and interpret on my own that didn't relate to a show I knew from television. The budget for the 1973 TV21 annual must've been radically slashed - there are no licensed characters other than Star Trek. I recall I didn't know what a nervous breakdown was when I read the story - but with the benefit of hindsight (and I'm no psychiatrist) Xavier Beach seems to be suffering some sort of disassociative psychotic episode - but what do I know? Anyway, I still find creepy the panel where he is walking off into the mist.
