Egmont, the current owners of Tammy, have made a tentative foray into digital comics, which may make my own effort superfluous. So far they've only released Roy of the Rovers through iTunes, but there's some indication that they intend to follow this up with more of their vast back catalogue.

That's the good part. The bad part is that they are a bit pricey. £1.99 for a 'volume' of 26 pages, or what I like to call an 'issue'. I have no idea of the quality, but when I'm getting original comics for less than that, I consider that a bit high.

Update: It appears that there is a one off special of Misty coming our way in digital form in the not too distant future, presumably with different contents from the last Misty special, but no Tammy on the horizon yet.

  1. Two pounds is ridiculously expensive! The only way the publishers are going to get any of their money multiplied is by either bringing out inexpensive thick volumes or by low-cost digital editions.

    Printing is becoming cheaper by the year, but I am not sure if anyone is eager to buy a 1000-page Tammy or Misty book. And even then you are only scratching the surface of all the issues that were published.
