Tammy was a weekly girls' comic published by IPC Magazines that ran from 1971 to 1984. Its first editor was Gerry Finley-Day.

The comic was conceived to breathe new life into the genre of girls' comics; writer Pat Mills summed up the publication's ethos as "hard, gutsy stories that don't have to have a happy ending...combined with a strong camp quality, very clever plotting, ingenious ideas and totally over the top but still realistic concepts."[1]

A number of comics merged into Tammy over theyears: Sally in 1971, Sandie the following year, June in 1974, Misty in 1980, Jinty in 1981[2] and Princess in 1984.[3] Later that year Tammy itself merged into another comic, Girl.[4] Or rather, it should have merged into Girl but was instead dropped after a strike.
