Re: Possession in British Girls' Comics

One good possession story in Tammy was "Secret of the Skulls", where Prudence Sylvester is up against a woman who has been possessed by the spirit of a witch - not to mention a lot of creepy skulls that have the power to burn things! Another sort of possession story from Tammy is "The Cat's Eye on K...

Re: Possession in British Girls' Comics

Robert Le Mal, the ghost in Tammy's "Nightmare at Grimm Fen", has amazing powers of possession: he can control birds, animals, people and even power lines. I might do an entry on this one when my comics are out of storage. It would be cool for Halloween time.

Re: Possession in British Girls' Comics

Misty had a sort of possessed story, "Hush, Hush, Sweet Rachel", where Lisa Harvey is overtaken by her previous existence as Rachel Prendergast, a four-year-old who died in mysterious circumstances https://jintycomic.wordpress.com/2017/ ... l-1978-79/

Re: Possession in British Girls' Comics

This may not be exactly what you are looking for, but possession/hypnosis was a fairly regular theme in ballet stories – evil Svengalis who hypnotise dancers for their own ends, shoes which won’t let the wearer stop dancing and so on. I’m struggling to come up with a really distinctive early exampl...

Re: Possession in British Girls' Comics

I can't really help with the 1950s-1960s mark. You might find something if you navigate Girls Comics of Yesterday with keywords "evil object" and "evil influence". There was a story actually called "Possessed" from Judy. More info here http://girlscomicsofyesterday.com/2014/12/possessed/ In Bunty's ...

Request for a scan

I would like to have a scan of the first episode of "Lara the Loner" from Tammy, 10 October 1981. If not possible, a scan of another episode will do (not the final one). Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Request for a Strange Story

Moral of the story to ambitious parents from beyond the grave: don't try to pass on your talent through anything other than your genes. And if you haven't - forget it.

Re: Request for a Strange Story

Unlike most other stories, Elena Jnr isn't frustrated by something she wants to pursue but can't because her father keeps pushing her in the wrong direction. In fact, we never see what Elena wants to do if not for her father's stubbornness. Instead, the whole story is about the frustration and miser...

I don't have a spare, but I do have a copy of 26 April 1980. Happy to send you a scan, if this would be of use.
It won't be much trouble to do the scan? I know scanning a whole comic can be a big thing.

Re: Girls comic sexual awakening board game (possibly Misty)

You're welcome. By the way, if you know of a spare copy of Jinty & Penny 26 April 1980, I'd be very interested.

Re: Girls comic sexual awakening board game (possibly Misty)

It was a three-parter to commemorate the Jinty and Penny merger. It started Jinty and Penny 26 April 1980. For more information check this link https://jintycomic.wordpress.com/2017/04/23/jinty-and-penny-26-april-1980/ P.S. The bit about the girl being laced too tight sticks with me too about that g...

I just found another two: When the Clock Stopped and The Haunted Room. Strange Stories that appeared in June, 1 January 1972 and 18 March 1972.
