 THE VICTOR UK COMIC / PAPER 

The Victor was a British comic paper published weekly by D. C. Thomson & Co. LtdThe Victor ran for 1,657 issues from 25 January 1961 until it ceased publication on 21 November 1992.[1] Associated with it was the annually published The Victor Book for Boys. This annual was first published in 1964, with the last edition published in 1994. A hardback book, The Best of The Victor, was published in 2010 ready to commemorate the 50th anniversary of this popular adventure comic. The book featured a selection of reprints from the weekly comic.

The Victor told adventure tales in comic book format. It featured many stories that could be described as “Boy’s Own” adventures.[1] Many of The Victor’s stories focused on the exploits of the British military in World War Two. In particular, each week the front cover carried a story of how a medal had been won by British or Commonwealth forces during the Great War or the Second World War. One of these, from issue 15, appeared in Classics from the Comics in May 2009. In addition to these, the comic also featured science fiction stories, adventure stories and sports stories. [1]
