Rebellion purchases Fleetway Comic Archive!

Rebellion, the publisher of cult comic 2000 AD has announced it has purchased the Fleetway comic archive from media group Egmont, stating it was one of the biggest deal of its kind in 30 years and could bring “long-vanished” classic comics back into print.

This means Rebellion now owns Roy of the Rovers and dozens of other out-of-print 1970’s and 1980’s titles including characters from Tammy, Battle, Whizzer and Chips as well as banned title Action, humour comics Oink! and Whoopee, comics aimed at girls like Misty and Sally, as well as World War One serial Charley’s War.

Rebellion’s owners and founders, Jason and Chris Kingsley, previously bought 2000 AD and its sister publication The Judge Dredd Megazine from Egmont in 2000.

Rebellion’s head of book and comics publishing Ben Smith said: “I am delighted we have the opportunity to return these to print and develop new stories based on iconic characters.”
