The Rover was a British boys' story paper which started in 1922. It absorbed Adventure in 1961 and The Wizard in 1963, and eventually folded in 1973.

It included characters such as Alf Tupper and Matt Braddock, early examples of the "working class hero".

Boys used to trade these magazines amongst themselves though the price was tuppence or two pennies new.
