*Girls’ Comics: Girl’s Crystal started out as a story paper, with a style highly evocative of it’s time, such as the use of headings like Their Camping Holiday and Her Dilemma. The front cover and some internal pages carried illustrations, all of which suggest that women of the time only wore red. The characters were stylised, and intentionally youthful, but impossible to pin down to a particular age – mid-teens to late twenties. Stories were all Grand or Exciting (both if you were lucky), suitably patriotic during the war years, and, with the emphasis on cruises and adventures in exotic locations, offered post-war escapism. We’ve revamped our stock of Girls’ Crystal from its years as a story paper to bring the pricing structure into line with contemporary boys’ story papers, so that our stocks of these (1941-1948) are now approximately half the price at which we previously had them listed. For good measure we’ve added a complete year from 1952 also at the new prices. Bumper reading fun, with cover summaries such as ‘The Kiddies Were Looking Forward To The Mexican Fiesta — And Thanks To The Gay Outlaw All Their Hopes Were Realised’ (#583 1946). And in 1952 we get the Silent Three as well! Treat yourself to some ripping yarns, schoolgirl style!
