Egmont bringing back mag classics

Roy of the Rovers, Battle, Misty and Buster return to the newsstands.

Egmont UK and WH Smith have teamed up to bring a number of classic magazines back to the newsstands, with four special collections costing £3.99 each.

The first title on sale will be Roy of the Rovers from April 1st, with other publications rolling out during 2009.

Egmont acquired the Fleetway stable of comics in 1991 which included Roy of the Rovers, Battle, Misty and Buster.

"We are delighted to be bringing this fantastic portfolio of comics back to the newsstand for the fans to enjoy and indulge in their nostalgic reading," said Tim Jones from Egmont UK.

"These new launches are a great example of the huge portfolio of evergreen character comics, books and magazines Egmont publish, and we are thrilled to keep delivering content for their fans."
