*Girls’ Comics: We’ve had quite a few Junes through our hands lately, but recent updates pale by comparison with the leviathan influx of stock we have this week – this is the big one! From 1965 through to 1971, we have approximately 150 issues new in stock, and from the 30th January 1965, the title absorbed the veteran School Friend weekly to become June & School Friend, the title by which it is best remembered and best-loved by a generation. No token amalgamation, the addition of School Friend to June’s roster brought the star power of popular features, ‘Bessie Bunter’, ‘Vanessa From Venus’, ‘Lucky’s Living Doll’, ‘Cherry and the Children’ and ‘My friend Sara’, plus the expansion to 44 pages meant that readers of both weeklies didn’t necessarily feel short-changed or ‘crowded out’ by the amalgam. In addition to the more conventional fare such as ‘Nursing Is My Life’, or ‘Laura at Ballet School’, this period also saw a lot of fantasy and sci-fi themed series, including ‘Serena From Space’, ‘Mimi the Mesmerist’, ‘Fourth-Form Wonder’, and Glory Knight, Time-Travelling Courier’, on the latter of which more can be found in our fabulous features section. Previous updates to June have been very well-received, but we anticipate keen competition for what is regarded as her ‘peak’, so make sure your orders get in early!
