  1. It was in Bunty, 77 or 78 yrs, pub DCComics. I know this as I named baby sister after Jodie. She was born March 1978

    1. Must have been the first series that you got the name of Jodie for, as that appeared in February 1978 in the short lived comic Emma.

      I’ve had a few people comment on getting children’s names from the stories, shows how it must have inspired them!
