Lion was a weekly British comics periodical published by Amalgamated Press/Fleetway Publications from 23 February 1952 to 18 May 1974. A boys' adventure comic, Lion was originally designed to compete with Eagle, the popular weekly comic published by Hulton Press that had introduced Dan Dare (ironically, Eagle was later merged into Lion). Lion lasted for 1,156 issues.

By the 1960s Lion had settled into being one of the most popular British weekly titles of the time. Editor Bernard Smith was always proud to say that he had the latest issue of Lion delivered to Buckingham Palace every Friday, the young Prince Charles being an avid reader (in 1960, Prince Charles was 11 years old).
