*Girls’ Comics: Mirabelle, one of the romance comics that arose to compete with Marilyn, Roxy and Cherie, lasted longer than most of her sisters, outlasting even the redoubtable Romeo to be virtually ‘Last Chick Standing’ in 1977, outlived only by Jackie. Despite a respectable run of 1,009 issues, it’s little remembered these days, which is rather a pity, as its romance comic strips were a cut above, and some of the earlier painted covers (particularly those by Shirley Bellwood, later of Misty fame) rather stunning. We only have around twenty new Mirabelles in stock, but they’re good ‘uns: a handful from 1964 to 1966, then a more generous portion from 1969 to 1975, including Christmas, New Years’ and Halloween issues, plus enticing straplines like: “He Looks Happy…But There Are Times When Donny Osmond Cries!” How can you resist? As a special bonus, we have one free gift issue, with a Flexidisc of the New Seekers to be played on your hi-fi turntable. Check the website catalogue for the details!
