Bullet ran from 1976-79 then was merged with Warlord.
It's main character was a "Simon Templar Saint" character called just "Fireball". He was raised by his uncle, Lord Peter Flint aka Warlord, after his parents, who worked for British Intelligence, were killed in a mysterious car crash.
For 35p you could join the Fireball Club, and get the Top Secret Story of Fireball, a plastic wallet with ID cards and - wait for it - a Fireball pendant made of black plastic that glowed red when you held it up to the light!
- Steve Wylie (Fireball Agent!)

In later years the pendant was made of solid black plastic with a raised gold logo - I still have it!

Fireball Agent
Warlord Agent (Letter of the month 12.5.84)

I was a Warlord and an Action kid, but my older brother was a proud bearer of the Fireball pendant...in later years, I worked for D.C Thomson and the guy who used to pose for the photographs of Fireball himself seen in later issues still worked there. This was 1985 I think.

An honour to have known Fireball in the flesh. My brother guarded his 'Fireball' survival guide as jealously as I guarded my 'Warlord' codebooks, but that didn't stop us swapping each others issues for a good read. In their own way, both these comics could be as violent as Action had been. I'll never forget a steely-eyed Fireball at the controls of a helicopter using the blades to butcher some approaching bad guys. "I guess that's why they call them choppers..." was the almost casual thought floating above his head. Fantastic! - Gary Bakewell

Just browsed onto your Bullet page and found it interesting. For some reason, as a child I was pretty much obessed with Bullet and was a devoted Fireball. I thought (and still think) it was an excellent comic and I still have the full set of all 147 copies (2 and a half years worth) of the comic in my mother's attic. I once had a letter published in an issue and was given a fireball t-shirt for my effort. So it was nice to see your site.

"Nothing to lose your head about", thinks Fireball (as casually ducks when a large bald man swings an axe towards his neck) or "They're really dampening my enthusiasm now" as the baddies attempt to drown him by gushing water into a locked room.

By the way, I wonder what Fireball's arch enemy Catriona Klangsburg (alias the cat) is doing these days ??? Regards, Pete Barnard (Fireball agent)

Thanks for an excellent site. Re Bullet; Who can forget the inter comic rivalry of Warlord and Bullet? I seem to recall that in later issues DC Thompson attempted to imply that rival factions should join forces - having spent a year or so fostering the idea of fierce oppponents! Yes, I had the Fireball badge/pendant through the club (together with the secret code related red wallet story insert), but what I liked most was the Calling Card - you were given several when you joined up, but then encouraged to cut extras from the comic - I think most of my issues are in tatters..... Chris Harris

Bullett!!!!!!!!!! I thought that was long forgotten. I still have the "Fireball Guide to Survival", complete with its' plastic wallet!!! - Stephen

I remember the following the mice of tobruk the day of the - zoltans? - i think the boy with no name - which was fireball's life history there was also a cricket story about a bowler who allegedly killed a batsman with a ball but was later proved innocent was it called KIller Gorman - it's just come to me now i think. and there was another football story which was in when twisty was out - Ian Bennett
