BUNTER IN THE KNOCKOUT FUN-BOOK
( Click the images to view full size )

Although the companion to the Knockout Comic has become highly prized by annual collectors, it is likely that many fans of Frank Richards will be unaware that four of the volumes contained Greyfriars/Bunter text stories by him. In fact, the 1955 (cover dated) annual contained no less than three stories.

The following list is broken down into three catagories: text stories (written by Frank Richards), text features (almost certainly written by others), and comic strips (which were initially scripted by Frank Minnitt and later by others). Artists for comic strips and illustrators for other features are given where known.

 

TEXT STORIES

Note: "Billy Bunter’s Story" in the Knockout Fun Book 1946 (1945) is actually a story of St. Sam’s rather than Greyfriars.
