The Comet (1950-1958)


Christmas Shows

Floreat Greyfriars


Originally, The Comet reprinted a few early Magnet stories [85-96], until Frank Richards began supplying original stories [97-135]. After a gap, they then produced a series of picture stories, initially derivative [186-240], and then later by C H Chapman based on original Magnet stories again [407-518, though 506 onwards are by an unknown artist].

You can read an original Comet from 1956 on the Publications page. A number of the comic strips were also reprinted in the Big Fat Bunter book.
