Anyone know the issue date this happened? I recently picked up a few random issues from 1986, it was in the March 8 issue, but not in the May 17 issue.

Hi Blake, Billy's last appearance in Eagle was the May 10th issue and joined Roy of the Rovers with the May 17th issue.

Great, thanks for the info! How long did it run in Roy Of The Rovers?
I have a couple of issues from 1988, and it looks like a different artist. Billy doesn't look like Billy :(
I'm on a mission to track down issues and continue where I left off, wasn't a big fan of the merger with Eagle.

Wikipedia says it ran until May 1990, at which point it became reprints.
