Vulcan (Fleetway)

Vulcan was a weekly British comic book magazine published by Fleetway and Swiss publisher Gevacur from 1975 to 1976.[1]

Publishing history

Vulcan was a reprint title used by Fleetway to make use of its back-catalogue of superhero and adventure strips printed in Lion and Valiant during the 1960s and early 1970s. Format-wise, it was something of a departure for Fleetway's comics, being the same size as an American comic, and featuring good quality paper. The magazine was printed in Germany.[1]

After a trial run in Scotland from March 1975 with an issue dated 1 March 1975, the comic was launched nationally with an issue date of 27 September 1975. It continued for a further 28 issues (the last dated 3 April 1976) until being cancelled and merged with Valiant. Later in 1976 an annual was published.

Vulcan ran for 29 issues.
