Vulcan was a reprint title used by Fleetway to make use of its back-catalogue of superhero and adventure strips printed in Lion and Valiant during the 1960s and early 1970s. Format-wise, it was something of a departure for Fleetway’s comics, being the same size as an American comic, and featuring good quality paper.
After a trial run in Scotland from March 1975 with an issue dated 1 March 1975, the comic was launched nationally with an issue date of 27 September 1975. It continued for a further 28 issues (the last dated 3 April 1976) until being cancelled and merged with Valiant. Later in 1976 an annual was published.
Vulcan ran for 28 issues.
The following series were amongst those reprinted in Vulcan:
– The Spider
– The Steel Claw
– Trigan Empire
– Robot Archie (which married the art from Bert Bus’ Dutch reprints with the original English scripts)
– Mytek the Mighty
– Saber, King of the Jungle
– Kelly’s Eye
– The House of Dolmann
