Comments: Debbie was a girls' comic launched by D.C. Thomson on 17th February 1973. As with most British girls' comics, it contained a mixture of comic strips and photo stories, and covered a broad range of genres, from romance to science fiction, horror and suspense to period drama, humour to superhero, all appearing alongside one another. One of the more successful girls' titles, it lasted for five hundred and thirteen issues, the final one coming out on the week of 15th January 1983, nearly a decade after the first issue. In 1978, during this lengthy run, Debbie absorbed Spellbound.
