Amalgamated Press

Fleetway

Fleetway, aussi connu sous les noms Fleetway Publications et Fleetway Editions, était une société d'édition britannique principalement spécialisée dans la bande dessinée et les comics.

Historique

Sa société Fleetway a d'abord été créée sous le nom Amalgamated Press par Alfred Harmsworth, à la fin du XIXe siècle. Elle était installée dans un bâtiment nommé Fleetway House à Londres. La socité est entrée dans l'édition de bande dessinée dès 1890 avec Comic Cuts et Illustrated Chips. Elle publie aussi des nouvelles sérialisées dans des pblications tel que les histoires d'Edwy Searles Brooks dans des magazines comme The Thriller.

En 1959, la société se rebaptise Fleetway Publications.

En 1963, Fleetway Publications fusionne avec les presses de George Newnes et Odhams Press pour former IPC Media. Fleetway devient alors le nom de la branche comics d'IPC, bien que des séries soient puibliée sous le nom IPC.

En 1987, toutes les publications de comics sont rassemblées sous la branche Fleetway et vendue à Robert Maxwell.

En 1991, avec la disparition de Maxwell, son entreprise est découpée. La division des comics est rachetée par la société danoise Egmont, qui la fusionne avec sa propre division britannique, London Editions, pour créer Fleetway Editions.

Depuis 2002, le nom de Fleetway Editions a cessé d'apparaître sur les publications d'Egmont.
