Tammy

Tammy was a weekly British comic for girls published by Fleetway in London from 1971 to 1984, at which point it merged with Girl. Other titles which had merged with Tammy before then include June, Jinty, and Misty [1].

It consisted of a collection of many small strips, with the stories themselves normally being three or four pages long. As well as the weekly comic, Christmas annuals were also published. While there were similarities with its Fleetway stablemates Jinty and Misty, each comic had its own focus, with Tammy concentrating on sadder Cinderella-themed stories[2] and dark tales of tortured heroines, most notoriously in Slaves of War Orphan Farm and No Tears for Molly. Tammy's respective merges with Misty (comics) brought darker, horror tones, and her merge with Jinty (comics) more science-fiction. Despite these, changes in editorship brought Tammy to a more traditional mould in storytelling during the 1980s. The dark, cruel streaks that made Tammy so revolutionary in the 1970s had disappeared, except for Bella Barlow.

Tammy had more long-running regulars than most girls' comics due to her respective merges. The Tammy and Sandie (comics) brought Wee Sue in 1973. The Tammy and June (comics) merger brought Bessie Bunter and the Storyteller with The Strangest Stories Ever Told in 1974. The Tammy and Misty (comics) brought Miss T and Misty herself, to join the Storyteller, in 1980. The Tammy and Jinty (comics) brought Pam of Pond Hill in 1981.
