    Thriller Comics (Told in Pictures)

    Thriller Comics was a British comic that first appeared in 1951, coming out fortnightly until going to weekly in 1955.

    At first called Thriller Comics, by the end of its run it had been renamed Thriller Picture Library.

    Starting at 64 pages an issue, its interior art, like most British comics from that era, was black & white.

    At first doing mainly illustrated versions of classic stories such as the Man in the Iron Mask, and Rob Roy, they soon started to feature new original stories based on the 3 Musketeers, Rob Roy, Dick Turpin, Robin Hood and others.

    During its run it also published mysteries, westerns, war stories and tales of the Royal Canadian Mounties.

    By the time it stopped publication in 1963 at issue 450 it was rotating between a list of modern action heroes, spies and pilots.
