Boys comic book with stories, no comic strips.


Written almost entirely by Charle Hamilton aka Frank Richards the creator of Billy Bunter. Started in 1908 originally in a salmon coloured cover. Charles Hamilton is in the Guiness Book of Records as the most prolific writer.
- Nigel Upton

Ran from 1908 to 1940, nearly every issue featured stories of Greyfriar's School, with the immortal Billy Bunter! It was, in a way, a kind of soap opera series of ongoing stories which where also complete in themselves (the students and teachers of the school never aged, though some did leave, and new ones arrived). Far better than Hollyoaks! Each issue also featured one or more serial story instalments (these where often adventure or detective stories). Nearly every issue was reprinted by W. Howard Baker in a series of hardback volumes throughout the 1970's and 80's. Other odd features included a "paper within a paper" supposedly written by the boys of Greyfriars themselves! The Gem was a similar paper featuring stories of another school named St Jims. The two frequently crossed over as characters would leave one school and join the other for a time, or else the schools would play each other at cricket and football. - Michael Martin
