*Girls’ Comics: Launched in 1974 following the success of the ‘street-level’ Tammy, Jinty featured much the same sensibility as Tammy, but with a more whimsical bent, becoming the home of a lot of well-remembered sci-fi and fantasy tales. In its early days, though, it featured a safe, if well-rendered mix of comedy, cuddly animals, and wanton schoolgirl cruelty. In the first issue we were introduced to canine landlady ‘Dora Dogsbody’, well-meaning but maladroit swimmer ‘The Jinx of St. Jonah’s’, ‘Mandy Make-Believe’, ‘The Haunting of Form 3B’ and others. We have the first eight issues of the long-running title back in stock; the first issue is sadly Poor, with large front cover tears impinging on the ‘Dora Dogsbody’ strip – on the bright side, though, it is a very affordable copy at £15. The remainder of the first eight are very presentable, varying between Good and Fine, attractive early copies of a major series.
