*Girls’ Picture Libraries: From 1957, IPC/Fleetway published Schoolgirls’ Picture Library, a pioneering digest-sized comic which took the same themes as had been running in the Schoolgirls’ Own Library text digests, but added the exciting new dimension of a pictorial narrative. From Autumn 1963, Micron, a small publisher of picture libraries and story magazines, put out Schoolgirls’ Adventure Library, the content, format, title and even logo of which were strikingly familiar to those of Schoolgirls’ Picture Library. We are, of course, sure this resemblance was entirely coincidental and in no way intended to mislead consumers. Ahem. Be that as it may, we are pleased to have the first issues of both series in stock; Schoolgirls’ Picture Library #1 is FA/GD £50, featuring the adventures of Silent-Three wannabes in “Leader of the Secret Avengers”, while Schoolgirls’ Adventure Library #1 catches the zeitgeist of the day with “Penny Pop-Star Pupil”, and is an extraordinary VF/NM at £75.
