The second in the new Classic Comics series from Egmont rolls out this summer, with Battle Picture Weekly returning to the newsstands for the first time in 21 years.

The publication will go on sale exclusively in WH Smiths outlets across the country from this week.

Readers will be able to relive the exploits of characters including D-Day Dawson, Rat Pack and the Bootneck Boy in a series of picture strips.

The magazine was originally published between 1975 and 1988.

Egmont acquired the Fleetway stable of comics in 1991, which included four Classic Comics being released this year: Roy of the Rovers, Battle, Misty and Buster.

Battle Picture Weekly is being published in a one off special, 52-page edition, priced at £3.99.
