  1. Hi, im trying to remember what the little comic story books I read as a child in the early 80s. They were A3 size, black and white and came out fortnightly or monthly? I can remember a possessed tree, a sabotaged fashion designer…there were loads! Any ideas? Thanks.

      1. It sounds like you are talking about the picture story library books, although you said little then A3 size, think you may have meant A5 size?

        These complete stories came out about once a month, under a comic’s name (i.e. Bunty, Mandy) they were small and were about 64 pages. I’ve a list of various titles here: http://girlscomicsofyesterday.com/picture-story-library/

        The possessed tree sounds like “Tree of Fear” (Debbie Picture Story Library #12 – reprinted Mandy PSL#253) Sorry I don’t have any pictures.

        The sabotaged fashion designer possibly “Fran in Fashion” here’s a picture: http://images.worldofrarebooks.co.uk/1395827708BRL_1.jpg

  2. Does anyone know how i can offload a few tammy, debbie, tracey comics to someone who might appreciate them? They have definately seen better days but thats how i recieved them…?

    1. You could donate them to the Media Studies department (Girls section) at Liverpool John Moores University. All story papers for girls are gratefully received there, and are exhaustively studied. My contacts there are lecturers Nickieanne Moody, who I spoke to just yesterday on a similar matter, and Val Stevenson, who will not be back for a week until term starts. Their telephone number is 0151 231 5175.

      1. Just to alert you, Lorraine, it doesn’t seem to be possible to read your comments on two serials from Suzy, The Strange Tale Of Sara’s Snap Encounter, and Force Of Evil.

          1. I’ve just checked again, Lorraine. The upright ‘I’ doesn’t change into a hand on those two titles, preventing access to your comments as a result. All the rest are fine.
