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.

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

EXTRA ISSUES

============================

These extra “Kobra’s/Vulcan’s” weres compiled from the original source material (the comics that printed the Spider, Archie, Adam Eterno, etc stories) and where needed were translated from the German by a comic collector/scanner here online.
They never had an English publisher and in the case of some issues, they never actually existed, they were compiled from old comics as much of the original Vulcan was re-prints anyway).

The Kobra/Vulcan scans started as an April fool’s joke when I discovered several German Kobra scans and transferred the English text onto the pages, remaking Vulcan copies. Everything after Vulcan V2 28 (3 Apr 1976) were Kobra scans and some of the missing Scottish issues from 1975 were again Kobra scans with English added back in. It also appears that Kobra issues were printed two weeks earlier than the Vulcan equivelant and were marked on the front cover with the week of the year but no date. (Bill the Trigan)

    The Vulcan Annual 1977 stops at page 56, the first page of a story. While the books index page shows over 85 pages. (thank you for creating this site)

    Hello boutje777,
    I just discovered your Vulcan page .
    As always per my Trigan interest, it is interesting to see how Vulcan treated the Look and Learn issues by reconfiguring pages, pictures, dropping sometimes full pages in the continuity
    And amazed to see Storm in issue 139
    Another fantastic work by you !!!
    Thanks again
    Jb
