    Do You Remember 'Twinkle Annuals'?

    Twinkle Annuals, which were especially for little girls. Twinkle started as a Comics Magazine in 1968 until 1999, with an Annual every year from 1970, and its last was in the year 2003. The Annual contained stories of regular characters, and some new ones, all illustrated with beautiful pictures. Fun, colourful, perfect for a little girls' imaginations.

    For anybody who collects comics that fondly recalls the martial arts movie mania of the 1970s, one of the forgotten gems of the era is Howard the Duck #3. Boasting a spine-tingling tale entitled "Four Fingers of Death," this issue was written by Steve Gerber and illustrated by John Buscema.
