IIRC this came out in the summer of 68 as a tabloid sized comic with loose pages - no staples - and colour throughout. I think it was trying to look like Eagle in style, but it is nearly 40 years ago! In its last month or so it changed format to the average size of comic, pages bound together but not stapled, and about eight pages of colour. It used web offset for its colour so could do photos much better than, say, the other comics like Buster or Lion. When it died and was merged with Tiger, Tiger and Jag carried on the use of the different type of paper for use of web offset to print photos.

Nice to see Lew Stringer mention Jag in more detail on his blog.

Cheers, Mr Stringer!
