No not THAT one!

I've just bought this comic from 1950 which is "edited by Basil Storey". Published by Sport-in-Print of London, I wondered if anyone had any info on it please as I can find very little on the Web?.

Thanks. I started my working life in Fleet Street and am interested in where publications came from in terms of premises. A friend worked in Long Acre - home of the Power Comics.

I've never been to Long Acre although I do go to the antique fair in Covent Garden occasionally. As Power Comics have a place in my heart perhaps I should go there to pay my respects. To be honest I don't even know where Long Acre is but will consult my London A-Z shortly. I probably went there as a messenger boy in the seventies but don't remember it.

I had a look on Google Maps, and 64 Long Acre is the opposite direction from Leicester Square. From Covent Garden Tube go to the other side of Bow Street, and 64 Long Acre is on the right. there's a branch of Rymans at street level, but the floors above look like they haven't changed since the Power Comics days.

Funnily enough as a messenger in the early seventies i was always aware that, no sooner had the train pulled out of one of those stations, then it was pulling into the other and just two nights ago, reading an old newspaper, i saw an item saying consideration was being given to closing Covent Garden station as it was only a 35 second walk from Leicester Square station.
