Tammy & Jinty 2020 Special
the gloom and despair of a spring spent in lockdown, summer is here again and
with it a brand new Tammy & Jinty special! These two spectacular tales
of courage and awe are guaranteed to chase the blues away, with work
by Rachael Smith (Wired Up Wrong), RAMZEE (Zorse), Yishan Li
(Hellboy & The B.P.R.D.), and Elkys Nova (Roy of the Rovers),
and a cover by Marguerite Sauvage (DC Bombshells).
In Boarding School,
Tabatha and her little brother Richard are the only pupils in a mysterious old
building. The only other people they have ever seen are the Governesses - four
teachers who fawn over the younger sibling but treat Tabatha very badly. Does
it have something to do with Richard’s special power? When Tabatha finds a new
friend in the outside world, her old life quickly starts to unravel.
An old favourite from
the pages of the Sally returns as fourteen-year-old Claire finds an old cat
costume in her mother’s wardrobe and wears it to a social media star’s party,
unware that she has just donned the magical mantle of the super-sleek crime
Finally, we get an
inside scoop on what it was like to write for girl’s comics in their heyday, as
Alison Fitt (known then as Alison Christie) talks about her experiences working
for Jinty and Tammy on such strips as Heart of Stone, Somewhere Over the
Rainbow and Ping Pong Paula.
