The Roy Of The Rovers wiki last edited by IanBeale on 08/17/14 01:12AM View full history

Long running British comic strip, Roy of the Rovers, finally got its own publication in 1976 when Fleetway introduced the new weekly publication, Roy of the Rovers. The series followed footballing striker, Roy Race, a player-manager with fictional side Melchester Rovers.

The series ran from September 1976 until March 1993 (a total of 853 issues).

Following the cancellation of the weekly a new monthly title was launched in 1993, continuing the adventures with Roy Race's son - Roy 'Rocky' Race.

Note: as with most IPC/Fleetway publications, issues of Roy of the Rovers were unnumbered. To keep the volume in chronological order they have been numbered by their cover date YEAR/MONTH/DAY, for example 25th September 1976 would be 760925.
