Re: Seeking 'Phantom of the Fells' (Bunty?)

There's a list of his work on Misty here: https://www.juliaround.com/misty You can sort the columns by artist. I believe he's also the artist for "The Girl with the Black Umbrella" which appeared in Mandy 1972 http://girlscomicsofyesterday.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/girl-with-black-umbrella.jpg

Re: New Tammy & Jinty Special coming

Lizzie Boyle is the editor on this special. She wrote the "Best Friends Forever" strip in the last Misty/Scream special and "Gums" in the recent Cor!!Buster special, which was my favourite strip in that special, so think she'll do a good job on Tammy & Jinty. Not sure if she's writing any stories or...

Derek couldn't you sort of cheat i.e. Jane model miss 108 ( for example or whatever number or system you use ) 108 A 108 B 108 C etc but i have no idea how you will lay it out etc but i think that's what i would do so each serial although the same character etc still gets 3 lines and i would do tha...

Re: New Tammy & Jinty Special coming

It's looking good. No surprise Bella is there, especially considering they've already released reprints. I expect a sci-fi story perhaps a sequel to something they've already printed, such a return to the Land of No Tears or maybe they'll just do a new Sci-fi story. I expect some of the stories will...

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

These aren't issues I own instead it is information I got from a visit to national library, so it is possible I noted it down wrong. What I noted: 108 "They're My Mum and Dad!" Mary in the Middle Moira and the Moonflowers Patti the Prefect Posh Penelope Schoolgirl with a Secret Slave to her Sister T...

Pat Mills recently wrote some pieces on girls comics on his blog, worth a read for those interested. The second part discusses options for pitching a girls comics today https://www.millsverse.com/girlscomics2/ An interesting section on photo strips came up and I don't think I'd seen a positive defen...

Re: New Tammy & Jinty Special coming

This is exciting! I think I'll get a bundle, there are 4 comics I would be interested in getting; Tammy & Jinty, 13th Floor, Vigilant and Cor! Buster, so may as well get the two extra 2000AD issues for similar price. I really like all this new material coming out yearly along with the reprints, look...

Re: Another appeal for help in finding a serial

Thank you for trying, Goof. Frankly, I am beginning to doubt the story does exist. I can’t see any girls’ title running anything like that in the time period mentioned. If it had appeared, surely someone would have remembered it? It’s so distinctive. I think we've done as much as we can, and it may...

Re: Another appeal for help in finding a serial

I've made the suggestion of Legion of Super Slaves, so have to wait and see if that is right.In the meantime as the other title Cassie remembers reading was June and Schoolfriend I've had a look through the ones I own from late 60s but I only have a couple and doesn't appear in those issues (11 Dec ...

Re: Another appeal for help in finding a serial

It does sound very distinctive, I would think I'd remember if I read it but nothing is springing to mind, hopefully someone will be able to help.

Re: Search for Story in Annual

True if you are reading a lot of these annuals in a row, the "she was a ghost all along" seems over done. Although I do find it interesting that movies like "The Sixth Sense" and "The Others" were praised for such a twist when they came out, maybe viewers hadn't read the dozens of stories with that ...

Just to pass on David's thanks too, he was very grateful

That was often the case with these short spooky stories, ending on the twist reveal. I suppose that leaves the bigger impact but it also leaves a lot of questions.

Re: Search for Story in Annual

Thank you so much Goof! I was suspecting it could be a Mandy annual as it had some creepy stories in the 80s. Any chance of a scan of the story, if not it's okay I'm sure person will be happy to know what book it is.

Search for Story in Annual

I've had a query about a story from annual on my site that I and others have tried to track down with no luck yet. The initial question was as follows: "I live in Canada and every Christmas between 1978-1987 my grandmother would send me and my siblings Beano, Dandy, Twinkle and Beezer annuals. For a...
