SPELLBOUND: STORIES, CREATORS, CREDITS

My current project explores the British girls' comic Spellbound (published weekly by DC Thomson between 1976 and 1978).

Below is a searchable database that I have produced to accompany this. British comics did not include creator credits and so researching them is often a difficult task. This database summarises the entire Spellbound archive, and includes artist and writer credits where known content summaries, and other information about all the Spellbound stories. I hope it helps you locate that story you can't quite remember, find out more about ones you love, and that it is generally a useful resource for any fans or scholars interested in these lost publications.

 

You can also read my most recent writing on Spellbound ('Misty, Spellbound and the Lost Gothic of British Girls' Comics', in Palgrave Communications journal) here.

 

My thanks to David Roach for his incredible knowledge of artists, to Mark Round for the tech, and to BU's Women's Academic Network for supporting this project.

 

This database is very much a work in progress and so all additional information and feedback is very welcome! I hope one day we can name all the artists and writers and give them the credit they deserve.
