Interviews

An important part of this blog’s activity is to interview various people who had some personal contact with the work of producing girls’ (and boys’) comics of the time. Ideally this would consist of interviews with creators themselves (or links to pre-existing interviews on other sites), but of course with the passage of time this is not always possible. In addition there are some interesting insights that other connected people can give us, of course – the original creators’ family may know some details, as well as people who worked in comics publishing at the time, in whatever capacity.

Interviews with creators, or other articles in their own words or about them, based on direct recollections

Interviews on editorial or publishing processes and memories

  • An article about some of the processes and principles behind the script conferences held in the editorial offices in IPC/Fleetway.
  • An interview with Pete Wrobel about IPC/Fleetway and the NUJ with insight into the various bouts of industrial action.
  • Writer and editor John Wagner talks about his time working on girls comics, specifically on Sandie.
  • Writer and subeditor Rhoda Miller talks about her time working on girls comics and magazines, for DCT in particular.

Other interviews or memories from the time

  • Not exactly an interview, but covering memories of the time: an article based on the unprompted memories of adults of when they used to read girls comics, as shared by commenters on Mumsnet.
