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

We bought a dehumidifier a while back, and it's indeed amazing how much moisture it collects.

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

I keep the unread ones in transparent plastic crates, which I store under the bed. After I've read a full year of a comic, I wrap the bunch in cellophane, to protect them against dust and (I hope) insects. After that, I put them in a comics box, bought at Ikea. I put a piece of (thin) cardboard in f...

Re: Trying to find two Alison Christie stories

The final episode of 'My name is nobody' was published in June of 16th September 1972. So 44 episodes and a total of 132 pages. That's quite a lot, I think. Was this common for June?

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

The stories in Katy were colour reprints from stories that were published in the Dutch Tina. I don't know if they translated them back into English, or that they used the original English text that was used in Jinty, Sandie and Tammy. What I like about the stories that were printed in Tina, was that...

Re: Why are men collecting old girls' comics these days?

Yes, they were on Trademe. At first I couldn't contact the seller, because to be able to do that you need to be registered with an adress in New Zealand, but I was able to find the seller on another site, using Google. There was also a large collection of June a while ago on Trademe, but unfortunate...

Re: Why are men collecting old girls' comics these days?

Ah, the mail! I think everybody must have had bad experiences with mail deliveries at one time or another. I don't know how it is in the UK, but over here they now only work with freelancers and students, so in general not people who are as dedicated to the job as the good old fashioned postman used...

Re: Why are men collecting old girls' comics these days?

I guess it has to to with prejudice. Most people who find it strange, don't even know the content of girls' comics.

Re: Lucky's Living Doll

Yeah. :) Turf is a nickname for a fat person. Not a name that could be used nowadays in the political correct world we live in.

Re: Why are men collecting old girls' comics these days?

When I was a young boy, we had some of the Disney comics at home, and once in a while some boys' comics. But I didn't like the boys' comics very much. Most of the stories were either set in space, were about football or the army. Not exactly my cup of tea. When I was about ten, some girls at school ...

Re: EDMOND RIPOLL EN UK

Edmond also was the artist of many, many stories created especially for the Dutch edition of Tina, from 1975 until only a few years ago. Nowadays Tina only publishes work by younger artists. All the artists whose work appeared for decades on a regular basis, like Purita Campos, Edmond, Comos, Redond...

Re: Lucky's Living Doll

RE: Bessie Bunter: In France Bessie was renamed Betsy Boule (Billy Bunter was renamed Billy Boule over there). In the Netherlands Bessie was renamed Bessie Turf. A first series of six anthologies was published between 1966 and 1972. A second series of 11 was published between 1982 and 1986. And then...
