OH, what memories Thelma Edwards (Letters, June 1) brought to mind with her recollections of girls’ comics. As a child of the 1960s, I was encouraged to read Diana and Princess Tina by my father. Eventually I persuaded him to buy me Bunty and Judy, so I got four comics a week.

My father thought Diana and Princess Tina were “suitable for young ladies” though a bit posher and pricier. He didn’t think much of Bunty and Judy (which I loved), denouncing them as “trash”, though he read them before me.

My older brother got the Eagle with the adventures of Dan Dare.

Happy memories.
