New comics, new voices – the Tammy & Jinty: Remixed collection takes Britain’s incredible tradition of comics for girls and upgrades it for the 21st Century!
Out now, this brand new collection brings together the stories from Rebellion’s critically-acclaimed Tammy & Jinty specials from 2019 and 2020, showcasing contributions from some of the most exciting creators working in the industry today.
Comics aimed at girls were once a boom industry, supporting dozens of titles and boasting sales of hundreds of thousands of copies a week.
Published in the 1970s and ‘80s, Tammy and Jinty covered almost every facet of girls’ lives – school, sports, friendship, rivalry, romance, the apocalypse, ghosts, witchcraft, parallel universes, aliens and everything in between!
Tammy & Jinty Remixed pays tribute to this history while also blazing a new trail for the future where comics are for everyone, as writers and artists take old comics and characters as their starting point and reimagine them, or create brand new worlds.
The collection features work from established and exciting new voices in comics, including Rachael Ball (Guardian best graphic novelist 2015), Rachael Smith (Quarantine Comix), Ramzee (British Comics Awards Nominee 2016), Lisa Henke, Yishan Li (Swing), Dani (Coffin Bound), V.V. Glass (Doctor Who), and Elkys Nova (Roy of the Rovers).
From sports drama through romance and action, this collection highlights the breadth and depth of British comics for girls’ – dubbed ‘British Manga’ by comics scholars – with strips such as football drama Rocky Race, thriller Boarding School, superhero saga The Return of Cat Girl, and an update of rags-to-fame ballet drama Bella at the Bar.
This collection also includes exclusive new interviews and features, plus reprints of classic strips including the fan favourite Cat Girl.
