PRINCESS TINA UK COMIC
Princess Tina (at times known as Princess Tina and Penelope and then simply Tina) was a weekly British girls’ comic published from fall 1967 to summer 1973 by the International Publishing Company, initially under the Fleetway Publications banner. Two comics, Princess and Tina, were merged to form Princess Tina; another title, Penelope, was merged into Princess Tina in 1969; the publication itself came to an end when it was merged into Pink.
It was standard practice in the twentieth-century British comics industry to merge a comic into another one when it declined in sales. Typically, three stories or strips from the canceled comic would continue for a while in the surviving comic, and both titles would appear on the cover (one in a smaller font than the other) until the title of the canceled comic was eventually dropped. Princess Tina was a prototypical example of this phenomenon:
Twelve hardcover Princess Tina annuals were published between 1968 and 1980 (bearing the cover dates 1969–1981). Other hardcover annuals associated with the title were Princess Tina Ballet Book, dated 1969 to 1977, and Princess Tina Pony Book, from 1969 to 1981. Five annual saddle-stapled magazines were published as Princess Tina Summer Extra dated 1969 to 1974.
