Forget Marvel's lady blah-ing. What we need is more Bunty! Bunty annual 1976.
So I've brought some. If you remember my posts of ages ago or have the knowledge already, you'll be aware that Bunty was a British Girls' comic that ran weekly from '58 to '01 full of stories about girls doing stuff. Usually wacky stuff. Bunty was pretty huge and it was the first comics experience for a lot of girls, myself included. It's interesting to look at the "life lessons" in it's many varied stories.. they do progressive-seeming stories, and then they do completely awful screwed up rubbish. And then a story about how it would be useful to have a robo-pet. What am I supposed to have learnt from you, Bunty? Other than that comics are awesome?
After the cut: One very truncated story about a reluctant model, and a lot of first panels from a couple of my annuals. They introduce the premise of what'll be a two to eight page story, and go a little bit like "Tessa Worth had an unusual toy rabbit named Flopear which was really a highly-powered space craft in which she could travel. However, on the day before Christmas Eve, Tessa wanted to go no further than the highstreet!"
ACTUAL QUOTE. I'm saving that strip up, though.
If you want to hear more of any of these stories, let me know. I just got around to "scanning" (photographing..) Super Lamb today, after being asked to back on insanejournal.
Warning: '70s fatphobia within.( Let's go, girls )
