Titles in parentheses were originally published before coming under IPC/Fleetway ownership. Chart shows full life of all comics published originally under IPC/Fleetway ownership, with the exception of pre-school titles, single-issue titles, picture libraries, publications which I judge to be more magazine than comic, and those which comprised only or nearly-all reprint material. Comics originally published under the Fleetway imprint but after takeover by Egmont not included (with exception of Roy of the Rovers Monthly which is included as a continuation of Roy of the Rovers). The following websites have provided very helpful information and background reading, and are recommended: www.dandare.info, www.britishcomics.wikia.com, www.comicsuk.co.uk, www.comicvine.com, www.dezskinn.com, www.lewstringer.blogspot.co.uk, www.petergraycartoonsandcomics.blogspot.co.uk, www.toonhound.com, www.downthetubes.net Thank you!
