*Girls’ Comics: Launched as a stablemate to Tammy in 1972, IPC/Fleetway’s Sandie mined all the topics beloved by pre-teen girls; enslavement, cruelty, betrayal, rejection and loneliness, in serials with titles like ‘The School of No Escape!’, ‘No-One Cheers For Norah!’, ‘Lornas’s Lonely Days!’ and ‘Anna’s Forbidden Friend!’. Despite this angst-sodden line-up, and some top-notch talent, Sandie never really caught fire, and after 89 issues folded into June, with ‘Wee Sue’ (plucky mite who despite her tiny stature is irritatingly good at everything) being the only long-lasting ‘transfer’. Nowadays, though, Sandie is highly collectible precisely for its woe-laden narratives. We have twenty new issues of Sandie in stock, from 4th March 1972 to 29th September 1973. Illustrated is 6th May 1972, (FN £4) with ‘Captives of Madam Karma’, one of the earliest IPC gigs of legendary writer Pat Mills.
