Warlord Comic: Secret Agent Information Pages - 7 of 8




Warlord Comic: Secret Agent Information Pages - 7 of 8





The 'Warlord Secret Agent' information pages came with every issue of Warlord comic - usually in the centre pages.

Warlord was a comics anthology published weekly in the United Kingdom between 28 September 1974 and 27 September 1986.

It was first published in 1974 by D.C. Thomson. The comic was dedicated to wartime adventures and was a popular success, leading IPC Magazines to create a competitor, Battle Picture Weekly, in 1975. Warlord included several stories per issue, initially centered around a character called Lord Peter Flint (Codename: Warlord), a World War II version of popular spy James Bond.

At the end of 1978 Warlord absorbed D. C. Thomson's action comic Bullet. In total, Warlord ran for twelve years (627 issues), from 1974 until 1986, at which point it was incorporated into the long-running Victor. For the next four years after the comic's demise the publishers produced summer specials, ending in 1990.

To join and get the wallet, you had to crack a code in the comic, you then sent it off with your postal order (for 20 pence!) and you would receive a superb brown or black Secret agent wallet containing an ID card, a code book, several message cards and a Winged W badge. With the wallet, you were able to read coded messages in the comics.


Bullet was a comic book published weekly in the UK during the 1970s.

First published on 14th February 1976 by D.C. Thomson for seven pence, it focused upon adventure, action, revenge, science fiction, war and sport. It was a popular comic for boys throughout its publication.

The main character was a moustached, multi-talented, highly trained secret agent, aptly named Fireball. When his parents had died in a mysterious car crash when he was a young child, he became the ward of his father's friend Lord Peter Flint, a wartime hero (aka Warlord).
Fireball had been trained by Uncle Pete (since childhood) in the arts of shooting, martial arts, sports and survival - this was as well as the usual reading and writing skills. The full Fireball story was secret, but could be acquired by joining the Fireball club, which gave you the story enclosed in a red plastic wallet (The survival guide came as a free gift with the 2nd issue of Bullet.) This story was used as the plain text for a one-time pad for encrypting/decrypting secret messages which often appeared in Bullet's central pages as a sequence of random numbers. You also received a Fireball pendant for joining. Fireball's original pendant (which he always wore) saved his life on one occasion - it shielded him from a long range sniper's bullet. Fireball's arch enemy was Catriona Klansberg (aka The Cat). Fireball had a soft spot for her - he had a habit of letting her slip away after he had just thwarted her evil plan.

Fireball was said to have been modelled on Peter Wyngarde.

In December 1978 the comic merged into the longer running Warlord comic.
