50 years of the Rover

Post by Tin Can Tommy »

After reading this excellent blog post with a wonderful timeline of DC Thomson's comics (and story papers) https://michaelowencarroll.wordpress.co ... -timeline/ I noticed that the Rover along with the Beano, Dandy and Commando was the only DC Thomson comic to reach 50 years old. The Beano and Dandy 50 year anniversary was quite the big deal with special issues and even a documentary. I know it was only a few months after the anniversary that the Rover closed and the comic had changed massively since its story paper origins. But I wonder if anyone knows what was done for the Rover's 50th anniversary. Was it mentioned in the comic?
