SUGAR JONES collection coming in Summer 2020

A browse on Amazon today revealed this new book to be published in August 2020. The Best of Sugar Jones will collect strips from the series that ran in Pink, a girls comic published by IPC from 1973 to 1980. 

Sugar Jones was written by Pat Mills and illustrated by Rafael Busóm. Like the other material in Pink it was aimed at older girls rather than the juvenile market of comics such as June or Bunty. As the book's description puts it:

"Sugar Jones is the charming twenty-something host of her own late night variety show, beloved by viewers up and down the nation. Only her assistant Susie knows her secret – Sugar is really a selfish, sour, scheming hag of 40, who’ll do anything to make a quick buck!"

An interesting addition to Rebellion's Treasury of British Comics, The Best of Sugar Jones is listed as a 224 page paperback and is available for pre-order from Amazon's site here:
