I have the Beano book of Britain where Roger and Ivy share a strip.

The Beano Book Of Britain I'd like to see would be a full reprint of that Bash Street serial from 1968, where the kids and Teacher undertake a walking tour of the whole country, visiting real locations throughout.

I don't know if these have been mentioned but there was:

Steel Commando joined Captain Hurricane's strip in the Valiant and Lion merger.

Speedboy joined Billy's Boots in the Tiger and Speed merger.

Not a permanent merger but Strontium Dog has starred in Judge Dredd (so has Rogue Trooper for that matter).

That last one's more of a shared universe then, like Marvel and DC.

He didn't stick around long either. That was a pretty pointless merger IMO.

Yup though more like a shared multiverse. Similar to the Judge Dredd/Rogue Trooper crossover.

The Steel Commando was soon gone as well.

Ivor Lott and Tony Broke teamed up with female counterparts Milly O'Naire and Penny Less when their comics merged.

Does anyone know how long their team-up lasted? And was there any explanation on why they eventually broke up?

Garn! I forgot to add the team up of Alf Tupper and Bernard Briggs when they formed their own country! This featured in the Hornet in 1970/1971 and featured the art of Tony Harding.
