BEEZER COMIC STATISTICS
Issue nos. 1 - 1314
1956 - 1981
(All tabloid size issues)

The statistics below are based on the one thousand or so tabloid editions of 'The Beezer' that I have collected, supplemented with information obtained at the British Library at St Pancras. Only two issues remain undocumented - no. 154 (the last issue of 1958) and no. 155 (the first issue of 1959) - both missing from their respective year volumes. I have made best guesses for the contents of these issues.
STRIPS
Some strips have more than one series.
(a quick way to see which ones is to click on 'FROM' or 'TO' ascending).
Strip names are in upper case, individual series in lower case.
'APPS' (appearances) and 'PAGE AREA' totals in square brackets / italic are series totals (in effect, sub-totals of the strip).
For key to 'GENRE' column, see table below Summary table.
To change (or reverse) order click on column heading.
To see list of any missing appearances move cursor over bracketed figure in 'no. of missing' column.
Where there are more missing than appearances, the appearances are listed.

TABLE IS CURRENTLY SORTED BY ISSUE FROM (ie first appearance in run) / ASCENDING ORDER
