Publication Dates: 1968 – 1969
Number of Issues Published: 48 (#1 – #48)

Jag was a weekly boys adventure comic launched by Fleetway on 27th April 1968. Unlike its stablemates at the time, the comic was tabloid sized, printed on higher quality paper, and had four of its sixteen pages in full painted colour, and a further four in spot colour. Its format was closer to that of rival publisher Hulton Press’s Eagle than of the other Fleetway titles, but it lasted just 48 weeks (and towards the end became just a standard 32 page comic in the same format as Fleetway’s other titles). Strips featured included The Mouse Patrol (by Eric Bradbury), Cap’n Codsmouth (by Joe Colquhoun), Boy Bandit by Tom Kerr, The Indestructible Man (by Jesus Blasco), Custer by Geoff Campion, Football Family Robinson by Joe Colquhoun, and SF strip New World for Old. Following its cancellation, Jag joined the masthead of Tiger. There was also a Jag Football Special, and Jag Annuals were published from 1970-1973.

    Jags still missing as far as I can determine are as follows
    1968 10-21, 23, 24
    1969 45
    Annuals 1970, 1972, 1973
    Jag Specials 1968

    I find it amusing the first annual comes out when the weekly comic is cancelled.

    No wonder it was cancelled, as good as it was, it was always competing with Tiger (was Lion still around at that point?) why the fascination with big cats at IPC/Fleetway ???


    • boutje777 says:

      Yes Lion was published until may 74. There where so many good comics published that days, so many merged with others also, hard to choose from, let alone you had the money for all of those.
      I wonder also where that fascination came from. Perhaps they thought that they had to come up with another animalname because the Eagle was very popular in 1952 and they want to compete with it. And when tiger was published in 1954 they thought maybe since Lion was popular also, let’s take another big cat for the name.
