But it was about a mother who becomes mentally disturbed after the death of her daughter and makes her other children suffer.

Alas, no - I haven't been able to get to a Mart for a long time now due to having smallish kids. For what it's worth the lady in question was a big fan of both Jinty AND your blog! For me one of the most refreshing developments in the comics scene is the emergence of so many female fans in recent y...

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

I've just picked up some Katy comics and was surprised to find the contents to be in colour. They are also very much in the same format as Vulcan; colour rpts of b/w strips, comic size and paper quality is very similar. A very cool little series. How interesting to hear of this comic which I'd not ...

Introducing myself - Jinty specialist, at your service!

Hello all, I have been lurking and looking for a while now, but was reluctant to join another forum as I already have many internet calls on my time. This is such a great place though that I couldn't stay away for ever! :D You may already have seen reference to me as the co-writer (with Tammyfan) an...
