Bunty was a weekly girls' comic published from 1958 to 2001 by DC Thomson. From 1963 to 1997 its reformatted stories were reprinted in Bunty Picture Story Library.

In 1987 Suzy merged into it, followed by Nikki in 1989. In 2001, after 2249 issues, the weekly became a monthly reprint magazine, before folding completely five months later.[1]
