*Girls’ Picture Libraries: Continuing our high-grade ‘CSD’ (Cowboys/Schoolgirls/Detectives) event, we’re back among the Schoolgirls’ section with early issues of Judy Picture Library! Launched in May 1963 as a companion to Bunty PL, Judy PL lasted 375 issues, bringing done-in-one collections of the serialised strips from the weekly comic, giving readers a complete story every issue for only a shilling! This selection commences with #1 – “Dixie of Dude Ranch” – VF £50, FN/VF £45, and features most of the first 15 numbers in high grades, averaging FN or better, and with many VFs. Star features include “Nanette of the North”, “Bess of the Black Arrows”, “Rita’s Robot”, “Mandy of the Mountains”, and of course the peripatetic Sandra, of Secret/Castle/Island/Jungle/Runaway Ballet fame – my word, that girl got about a lot! More from CSD: Putney in weeks to come!
