Judy was a weekly girls’ comic published by D.C.THomson from 16th January 1960 through to 1991. In the seventies it had a bit of a makeover and pop-stars of the era were placed on the cover. In 1991 the comic merged with another DC Thomson comic Mandy and became known as M & J. That comic incorporated with Emma and Tracy in 1991 (there were a lot of girls comics in the sixties and seventies so keep up) and then finally merged with the mother of all girls’ comics Bunty in 1997. Even Bunty couldn’t last for ever and it ceased to be published in 2001.
Judy’s strips included Judy & Co.; Sandra of the Secret Ballet; Supergirl; Sally of Studio Seven; Petra the Party Maker; Topsy and the Scientist’s Secret; Marina and the Monster; Patience in the Saddle; and of course the best of them all Bobby Dazzler the only girl at Westbury boarding school for boys.
