*Girls’ Comics: Continuing on from our recent exhaustive Princess update, we are pleased to present the Pan-European girls’ weekly, Princess Tina, from its very first issue in 1967! Although technically a continuation of one veteran title – Princess – and the relative upstart Tina, Princess Tina wasn’t a ‘merger’ in the purest sense, as one title didn’t absorb the other, but both series were retooled to join in the initiative to launch ‘Tina’ as a multi-country weekly, with editions in a number of different languages. With its star features ranging from the distant past (Moira, Slave Girl of Ancient Rome), through the swinging 60’s (Jane Bond, glamorous agent for Wordpol), and the far-flung future (sci-fi trolley-dollies the Space Girls), and backed up by the star power of the first sequential comic-strip adventures of the famous fashion doll ‘Barbie’, the title was a huge hit, both for its slicker production standards and the positive, can-do adventuresses who inhabited its pages. We have 65 issues new in, consecutive from the first issue in September 1967 (Pictured) until almost a year later, and then a light scattering through 1970 and 1971. The overwhelming majority of this original owner collection are in a sound attractive VG condition, having been read once and put away carefully.
