TV Express   (1960)
Search for 'TV Express' on eBay

Publisher: TV Publications, Ltd.

Publication Date: April 1960 - January 1962

Country: United Kingdom

Language: English

Notes:
TV Express began with issue 286, ending with issue 375, then merging with its companion title 'TV Comic' (as TV Land also did.)

Originally known as 'Express Weekly' it began as a childrens newspaper in 1954 before converting to a comic with issue 39 (then known as 'Junior Express Weekly'.)

From issue 74 it became 'Super Express Colour Weekly'.

With issue 115 it merged with 'Rocket' becoming 'Express And Rocket'.

This is a tabloid sized comic, similar to the original 1950's Eagle and the 1960's TV Century 21 comics - (14" tall and 10.5" wide.)

As said above, TV Express merged with 'Rocket' comic with issue 115. When TV Express began with issue 286, although no mention of this is on the cover, the copyright text still calls the comic 'TV Express Weekly and Rocket'. When TV Express merged with TV Comic, the copyright note still called the comic 'TV Comic & Express and Rocket.'

When 'Countdown' comic (A more 'grown up' version of TV Comic) appeared, it took the 'Rocket' part, and in the copyright line (from issue 7) it is named 'Countdown and Rocket'.

TV Comic retained the 'TV Express' bit in its copyright line.

When Countdown changed its name to TV Action the copyright line became 'TV Action/Countdown and Rocket.'

When TV Action was absorbed into TV Comic, the line just said 'TV Comic incorporating TV Express and TV Action'. Rocket the comic actually only ran for 32 issues and ended in November 1956. But it didn't totally disappear until the end of TV Action in Aug 1973.. Bet you didn't know that!
