Spellbound 1.jpg

Spellbound was a girl-targeted horror weekly published from 1976 to 1977 by DC Thomson. It lasted for 69 issues before merging into Debbie.

Probably its most enduring legacy was in prompting rival publisher IPC to put out a similar girls' horror comic, the cult-classic-to-be Misty. But by the time this competitor hit the shelves, Spellbound had already folded.[1]
