The Sun (originally simply Sun) was comic launched on 11 November 1947 by publisher J. B. Allen, changing from weekly to fortnightly during its run. It had previously been a health magazine called Fitness and Sun. The publisher was taken over by the Amalgamated Press in 1949, and under the first editor Leonard Matthews it featured fewer humour strips and more adventure ones. It ran until 17 October 1959, when it was merged into Lion. Len Wenn was a later editor.
