The Comet (UK comics)
The Comet was a British comic magazine, launched by Cheshire-based publisher J. B. Allen on 20 September 1946. When the publisher was taken over by the Amalgamated Press in May 1949, Leonard Matthews was appointed editor and exchanged the paper's customary humour strips for adventure ones like "Battler Britton", "Billy the Kid", "Robin Hood", "Kit Carson", "Dick Turpin" and "Jet-Ace Logan". It continued publishing until 17 October 1959, when it was merged into Tiger.
