On this day, 11 August 1979: Jinty
Jinty and the untouchables. Jim Baikie drew The Village of Fame, and Terry Aspin drew alien-princess-stranded-on-Earth saga Almost Human.
Almost Human has a wistful, tragic feel to it, common to many girls’ comic strips of this time - especially Jinty. Xenia wanders across British countryside seeking a new home, but any living creature she touches dies instantly.
