It would be remiss of any discussion about British comics not to pay homage to the British girls’ comics. Iconic above all others was Mandy comic which appeared in 1967. In her blue dress, yellow matching shirt sleeves and Alice band, Mandy made her first appearance on the front cover in January of that year. Mandy comic was a mixture of girls’ stories usually involving the heroine overcoming adversity, trials and tribulations that would translate neatly into a Barbara Taylor Bradford novel such as 'Woman of Substance'. A plethora of girl’s comics soon followed but the comic now has place in the hearts of many adult women.
