Forces In Combat was a British weekly comic first released in 1980. The series was an attempt by Marvel UK to produce a comic more in line with the traditional British boy`s weekly. It reprinted earlier Marvel stories in short chapters and ran for 37 issues. Some of the comic-strips featured included Master Of Kung-Fu, Rom:Spaceknight, The Rawhide Kid, Kull The Conqueror, Machine Man, the Golem, the John Kowalski War is Hell stories and Sergeant Fury, plus colour reprints of Ron Embleton's Wulf the Briton, a non-Marvel strip that originally appeared in Express Weekly. After 37 issues it merged with Future Tense to become Future Tense and Forces in Combat; the first combined issue was #13, continuing Future Tense's numbering. Rom was the only strip to transfer over to the new title. The Forces in Combat subtitle was unceremoniously dropped from Future Tense only one week later, as the cover title reverted to simply Future Tense as of #14.
