Comics were big business throughout the late 19th century and through the 20th century until the early 90’s when the video game explosion put paid to the art of reading. I first got into comics in the mid 70’s. Initially reading friend’s copies of Tiger before I started to get my own. It was Tiger and Roy of the Rovers for me and Bunty and Jackie for the girls (I may have read those too).
Every Saturday I’d head to the newsagent and pick up my comics along with a tin of Top Deck shandy and a quarter of pear drops. Then back home to read during the ad breaks of TISWAS.
The likes of Roy Race, Billy Dane, Hamish Balfour, Kevin Mouse, Dougie Batson, Sintek, Johnny Cougar and many many more. Late 2020 I found a few copies of Tiger and it made me want to read them all over again. Ebay proved expensive for the original paper copies so I went down the route of finding digital copies (like I have for all music, TV, films and books).
I started with Tiger and Roy of the Rovers (obviously) but as you can see the collection now encompasses many more titles and genres.
I have split these into two sections (click the number to go to the section).
One:- Individual issues. Over 10,000 comics for you to download
Two:- Specials and story compilations. Seasonal specials and Christmas annuals along with all the stories in one file. Plus the big stories such as Roy of the Rovers and Billy’s Boots all together
All my comics are available to download for FREE – However, purchasing the files, webspace and storage cloud isn’t cheap. If you want to donate towards the upkeep and further purchases then please donate here:-

DISCLAIMER:- Any comic files found on JVTV have been created using my own personal files, purchasing from sellers and what I’ve found spending many hours trawling on the internet.
