Rebellion Releases — 9 June 2021


Out on June 10, 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.

Roy of the Rovers: The Best of the 1980s — Who Shot Roy Race?
by Tom Tully and David Sque
Rebellion ISBN 978-178108896-8, 10 June 2021, 176pp, £19.99. Available via Amazon.

The dawn of this new decade was one that Melchester Rovers would want to forget. The 80/81 season was far from their finest hour with the threat of relegation snapping at their heels all throughout the season and exits from the F.A. Cup and the European Cup leaving the trophy cabinet bare. For star striker Roy Race it couldn't be worse. His obsession with the team had caused a strain on his marriage and fractured his relationship with teammates like the hot-headed Vic Guthrie. And then there was an attempt on his life... After being shot in December 1981, Roy lay in a coma for several weeks while Sir Alf Ramsey stepped into the dugout for Melchester. Life in a lower division beckons, but at least the Rovers will be the most stylish team on the pitch with their new Gola sponsored kits! This book collects the most sensational storyline from Roy of the Rovers history.
