While the Roy of the Rovers story is no doubt the most famous and the longest running, there were lots of other stories which graced the Tiger and Roy of the Rovers comics across the years. 

The Tiger comic was first published on 11th September 1954 and the Roy of the Rovers comic was first published on 26th September 1976. The Tiger comic merged with Eagle on 30th March 1985 and the Roy of the Rovers comic ceased publication on 23rd March 1993. The Roy of the Rovers comic was relaunched as a monthly starting in September 1993 for a further 19 issues finally biting the dust in March 1995. Everything starts in September and finishes in March!
