This special one-off event features dozens of items, many of which would be a spectacular update in themselves in an ordinary week – but because we’re too good to you, it’s a fantastic festive free-for-all! With cover dates ranging from 1957 to 1975, a spectacular array of love, pop, fashion and fun in comics and magazines intended for teen+ gals!
Particular highlights include: Jackie #1, from 1964, and more than twenty issues from 1965 and 1966 – the earliest Jackies we’ve ever had in stock!; eight new issues of Romeo, from 1957’s issue #5 through to 1971!; a batch of Mirabelle from 1966 with astonishing lovely painted covers, including a Free Gift Issue with the Mini-Mirabelle Mag (thus incorporating this week’s Free Gift Farrago!), featuring extra comic-strip adventures!; from 1975, Mates #1, in the last days before photo-love conquered the girls’ comics world! – and new listings for our stocks of the ever-popular romance weeklies Cherie, Marilyn, and Valentine. But not content with that, we also have a range of magazines – no comics content – with features, pictures and articles about the pop icons of the sixties, many of which are debut issues: Date #1(1960), the implausibly-oversized Intro #1 from 1967 (“The Beatles At Their Frankest!”), Scream! #1 (No, not the Skywald horror mag. nor the Fleetway one either!) from 1964; a double-punch from 1963, with the Thank Your Lucky Stars Special and its companion, Lucky Stars (they were low on imagination for titles, but high on Beatles pics!); and Rave #6 from 1964, with a showbiz smackdown – “Beatles Vs. Cliff Great Film Special!” Cover stars include Jagger, Connery, Man from U.N.C.L.E., Herman (no, not Munster…) and, oh yes, did we mention the Beatles? Relive the days of the British Invasion, Swinging London, and just a dab of the BCR’s with this cross-section of pop-culture phenomena! Groovy!
