  1. I am really impressed with comparing the first Judy annual to the last one. I wonder what the results would be if we did the same with the Bunty and Mandy annuals? I imagine the contrast would be even stronger because there would be an even longer span of time between them.

    Your character Bumble from Colleen and the Last Witch sounds like she comes from a long tradition of witches being portrayed as nuisances (and sometimes even bungling characters) than than evil sorceresses and the effect is more funny than frightening. Sometimes the witches are not even villainous – they are just magical beings, as in Bunty’s ‘Maisie’s Magic Aunt’ or Jinty’s ‘Sue’s Daily Dozen’. But of course there are the really evil ones, such as the ones in Suzy’s ‘The Curse of Carmina’ or Jinty’s ‘Golden Dolly – Death Dust!”.

  2. A few names for this year:
