Regular series that lasted for 77 issues. Some Price Guides list this title only to #41 whereupon they continue the numbering under a further title, Leading Screen Comics with issues #42-77. Admittedly the word "Screen" appears in a small box across the main Leading Comics lettering for all of those issues but the covers had displayed the same box and "Screen" lettering from #34. To avoid any confusion all 77 issues have been collected under this one title.

Although this title is an important showcase for first appearances for some of DC's most long-lived "second-tier" super-heroes, from issue #14, the title becomes wholly devoted to "funny" animal stories such as King Oscar's Court, Nero Fox, Puss and Pooch and Peter Porkchops and Wolfie.

All issues were Non-Distributed on the news-stands in the U.K. but it is possible that copies found their way over through G.I.'s, Red Cross parcels etc. As with most Golden Age issues, they are generally scarce in the U.K.
