thumb|Buster was a weekly comic published by Fleetway, later IPC, later Fleetway again. It was launched on 28 May 1960. It absorbed Radio Fun (1961), Film Fun (1962), The Big One (1965), Giggle (1968), Jet (1971), Cor!! (1974), Monster Fun (1976), Jackpot (1982), School Fun (1984), Nipper (1987), Oink (1987) and Whizzer and Chips (1990), and was finally cancelled on 4 January 2000.


It started out as a misture of humour and adventure strips, although humour came to predominate over the years. The lead strip was "Buster" himself, originally billed as Andy Capp's son, although that connection was largely forgotten by the mid-1960s.
