  1. Nottingham Forest / Portsmouth not Plymouth Tiger
    Plymouth is paired with Blackpool Lion

    1. Thanks, I've got Portsmouth in the main list. I've updated the pairing.

  2. This comic was still being produced by Amalgamated Press, so Fleetway Publications came after these.

    1. That's a good point, it's something I became aware of recently and I have been meaning to sort it out but just haven't got around to it yet.


Please feel free to leave a comment, though it will not appear straight away, as I will need to authorize it.
