Various other UK girls comics titles included a “Best Of” reprint series (specifically, “Best of Misty Monthly” for 8 issues, “Best of Girl” second series, “Best of Bunty”, and the DC Thomson title “Lucky Charm”). Jinty and Tammy did not have such a reprint series. However, the series “Girl Picture Library” reprinted stories from both these titles and others, for instance Patty’s World stories from the pages of Girl itself. A list has been created by Mistyfan; see the post on Girl Picture Library for details.
