On this day, 9 July 1977: Jinty
If anyone can, Fran can. Artist Jim Baikie introduces a new readers’ favourite on the cover of Jinty.
We first meet ‘fixer’ Fran Anderson reading ‘Captain Gorilla’ comic (which looks great). There’s a good overview of the story by Mistyfan https://jintycomic.wordpress.com/2015/01/30/franll-fix-it-1977-1978-1979/ noting Fran was the first Jinty strip to be brought back by popular demand.
Elsewhere in this week’s issue, readers suggest gifts for the Queen’s Silver Jubilee.
