*Annuals: Continuing our pedigree collection of ‘Immaculate Annuals’, this week, we join the ladies – and the first ladies of the British comics world were Bunty and her younger sister Judy, the backbone of D.C. Thomson’s girls’ weeklies. As with other ‘Immaculate Annuals’ updates, these are uncirculated 1960s and 1970s stock from a newsagent’s inventory, never sold or even displayed, so the only flaws in any of them occur from long-term storage. No prices clipped, no gift dedications, ‘This Book Belongs To’ inscriptions or other interior markings, solid spines, tight corners and generally bright colours. However, the format of Bunty and Judy Annuals – non-slick hardcovers with slick dustjackets – has meant that a very small amount of dustshadow and edge grubbiness, particularly on lower edges, has occurred over the years, meaning that these Annuals – while still superior to the general run of second-hand items – are perhaps not quite as shiny as other entries in this collection. Nevertheless, as remarked, much better than the average, with no interior flaws. We have Bunty from 1965 to 1970 (Missing only ’67), and Judy from 1965 to 1969. Illustrated are Bunty Annual 1970 (VF DJ FN, £13.50) and Judy 1965 (FN DJ FN, £12).
