Tiger was a British comic magazine published from 1954 to 1985.
The comic was launched under the editorship of Derek Birnage on 11 September 1954, under the name Tiger - The Sport and Adventure Picture Story Weekly and featured predominantly sporting strips.
Its most popular strip was Roy of the Rovers, a football-based strip recounting the life of Roy Race and the team he played for, Melchester Rovers. This strip proved so successful it was spun out of Tiger and into its own comic.
The comic was merged with the football magazine Scorcher in the mid '70s, and became known as Tiger and Scorcher (unusual for such mergers it kept this title for several years). Later there was a further, less successful, merger with another comic called Speed. The end finally came on 30 March 1985, with some strips moving to The Eagle.
In all, 1,555 Tiger issues were published, as well as a number of hard-cover annuals.
