Miller Time

L. Miller & Son, Ltd. was a British publisher of magazines, comic books and pulp fiction. Between the 1940s and 1966, the firm published British editions of many American comic books. Probably best known for recreating Golden Age Captain Marvel as Marvelman in 1953 in order to avoid cancellation of their 'Marvel' titles after America's Fawcett Publications capitulated to National Periodicals (DC Comics).
