2000AD Gets All the Comics!

Rebellion has just acquired a catalog of comics with titles dating back 130 years. “It means the Oxford company now has biggest catalogue of English language comic book properties in the world. The deal includes Billy Bunter, Sexton Blake, Valiant, Look-In, and the 19th Century title Comic Cuts. Rebellion claims Comic Cuts – which held the record for the most issues of a British weekly comic for 46 years until The Dandy overtook it – gave the comic book medium its name. In all it bought 400 separate weekly and monthly titles.” (via Maura McHugh)
