*Girls’ Comics: A pair of Free Gift issues from both sides of the UK comics’ ‘Big Two’; from IPC/Fleetway, Pixie #1, the 1972-launched girl’s weekly which ran 30 issues and ended its days as the last ‘mergee’ with the venerable June. Printed on better quality paper than most of its contemporaries, and with more colour pages, the star strips mostly featured famous characters from literature, including Black Beauty, The Naughtiest Girl In the School, Marion of Sherwood and Secret Garden. This copy of Pixie #1 comes with the Free Gift of a Doll’s Vanity Set, still mounted on its plastic frame and sealed in the original glued-in envelope (within comic). Comic is FN, Free Gift VF, on sale together for £50. From D.C. Thomson comes Debbie #33, home of, among others, ‘Marsalla of the Mists’, ‘Million-Pound Mutt’, ‘Nobody Loves Nancy’ and the long-running ‘Lisa – Lonely Ballerina’. This copy comes with its gift of ‘4 Pop Star Transfers’, iron-on images bearing (if you squint a bit) some vague resemblance to pop icons of the day. In our experience, transfers are more ephemeral and rarer than other gifts, so we have priced the comic (FN) and gift (VF) combo at £50.
