The Champion was a British weekly boys' story paper published by Amalgamated Press, which ran from January 28, 1922 until March 19, 1955.[1] Its original editor was F. Addington Symonds. From 1929 until 1940 it had a monthly, pocket-sized companion paper, The Champion Library, containing characters from The Champion and its sister paper The Triumph.[2] The Triumph eventually was merged into The Champion in 1942. The title was revived in 1966 for a short lived publication which merged with Lion.
