Re: Katy 1-10 Misty & Tammy reprints Vulcan For Girls?

In the Netherlands it was used for the Tina for the week from 29 January to 4 February 1972.

Re: Katy 1-10 Misty & Tammy reprints Vulcan For Girls?

I think that cover by Purita Campos was used for a Princess Tina magazine too.
That's right. Most of the covers of Katy were used for Princess Tina, and all of them were used for the Dutch edition of Tina.

Re: Girl Picture Library

Ah yes, I found a picture of it on the internet. No, that doesn't look like Greek statue! The picture doesn't ring a bell, so perhaps it's an original, too?

Re: Girl Picture Library

"The old mill" could be from June. There was a story about an old mill in there. Is it about a girl in a haunted mill? There was a story, I can't think of the title right now, but I think it's also from June, of which John Armstrong was the artist. It's about a girl who finds a friend, that turns ou...

Re: June fortnightly in 1974?

That's a very interesting theory, about the 3-day week.

Re: June fortnightly in 1974?

Yes. I don't know if Sally also wasn't published for ten weeks. But since they both returned in the same week, it's very well possible. Soon I hope to find out more about how long Sally was not published, as I am to receive most of the later issues of Sally some time next week.

It seems a lot of the information is similar to that on this blog, which has got information on even more artists: http://deskartesmil.blogspot.nl/

Re: June fortnightly in 1974?

From what I've been able to find out myself: 'Moses and me' started in the first week of 1974 (issue of January 5th) and ended in week 20 (issue of May 18th). In the Netherlands, 'Moses and me' had 15 episodes when published in Tina. If this was the same in June, then June would have missed five iss...

Re: June fortnightly in 1974?

Yes, the gap in 1970-1971 was huge: ten weeks no June! 1970 also had four issues that were slightly different in July and August: printed on a different kind of paper, with more pages and a slightly different size than the regular ones. Perhaps then there was also a strike going on, and they had the...

June fortnightly in 1974?

Today I read that June and Pixie was published fortnightly for a while during 1974. Does anyone know if this is true, and if so: how long this lasted? 1974 is a year from which I don't have many June comics, so I can't check it myself. I always thought there were 680 June comics. But if it was publi...

Re: How do you protect your 1970s UK girls' comics?

:) ...and the ones who collect the IPC titles will think: could he be the one that outbid me last time on Ebay when I thought I would finally be able to fill that gap in my collection?! I don't mind *that* much if I'm being outbid, because the one who outbid me this time, won't need another copy of ...

Re: Trying to find two Alison Christie stories

You're so right. I like all June comics, but to me the best period was from about 1972 onwards. About Pixie: I think the name of that comic was all wrong in the first place, and perhaps that is why it failed. Sure, there were some stories aimed at very young girls, like 'Milly-Molly-Mandy' and 'Mini...

Re: How do you protect your 1970s UK girls' comics?

Yes, storage space is really a problem. When I just had my collection of several thousand Dutch girls' comics, things were more or less okay. But now with all these British girls' comics, it is getting a bit of a problem. I have set my limits to what I want to collect (Jinty, Tammy, Sally, Sandie, J...
