NotesEdit

Battler first appeared in 'Sun' in 1956, but went on to feature in a number of IPC titles well into the 1970s, notably Lion, Air Ace Picture Library and two hardcover Battler Britton books in 1960 and 1961. There was also a Battler Britton Picture Library Holiday Special published annually from 1978-1982 and again in 1988. The IPC characters were eventually bought by Warner Bros., and Battler subsequently resurfaced in 2006 in a five issue limited series by Garth Ennis and Colin Wilson, published in the United States by Wildstorm, an imprint of DC Comics (see also Thunderbolt Jaxon and Albion).
