Smash! was a weekly British comic, published in London by Odhams Press Ltd from 64 Long Acre and subsequently by IPC Magazines Ltd from (initially) 189 High Holborn and (latterly) Fleetway House in nearby Farringdon Street.

It ran for 257 issues, between 5 February 1966 and 3 April 1971 (although, due to strikes and industrial disputes, publication was not continuous during that period). It then merged into Valiant. The Smash! Annual continued to appear each year until 1975; the final Annual, cover-dated 1976, was published in October 1975.

Up until 1969, Smash! featured a balanced mixture of British humour and adventure strips, American Batman newspaper strips, and American Marvel reprints. Thereafter, it featured only British humour and British adventure strips.

During 1967 and 1968 Smash! was part of Odhams’ Power Comics line, absorbing its sister titles Pow! on 14 September 1968 (issue 137), and Fantastic on 2 November 1968 (issue 144).

As Pow! and Fantastic had themselves already merged with Wham! and Terrific respectively, Smash! became the last survivor of the Power Comics lineup.

As with all the Power Comics, Smash! included black-and-white reprints of superhero strips which had been originally published in America by Marvel Comics and DC Comics. The last of these, the Fantastic Four, ended with issue 162 in March 1969.

Smash! was sized 9.75 x 12 (#1-162) and 9.25 x 12 (#163-257), and had a four-colour cover and black-and-white interior.

    Re: IPC run of Smash which commenced on 15-03-1969.
    Just a reminder as all of the post from the old Smash page has now disappeared.
    The IPC run of Smash is still missing the following two issues:

    Smash 187 [1969-08-30]
    Smash 214 [1970-03-07]

    Also, Smash 192 [1969-10-04] is incomplete – page 12 is missing from this issue (i.e. the first page of the ‘Master of the Marsh’ strip).
