I was never a fanatical Roy of the Rovers fan, even when I was avidly devouring comics. But if the comic were available, I would read it. So, it’s not for lack of exposure. But despite my disinterest, I know the comic had a devoted following and it is still, often, referenced in a loving manner.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of Roy’s first appearance. For a nostalgic look back at Roy of the Rovers, check out this pictorial Guardian piece.
