The Knockout Fun Book.

The Knockout Fun Book was a companion to the Knockout Comic. It was first published in 1941, was renamed the Knockout Annual in 1957. Publication ceased after the 1962 issue.

Most of the Greyfriars content consisted of comic strips but a few original stories did appear and are listed below. The 1955 issue contained three genuine Hamilton stories and has been scanned in full - you can read it here.

Steve Holland has published an excellent article on the Knockout in his 'After the Magnet' website. You can read it here.

Bill Lofts and Derek Adley published a booklet on Hamilton's work after the Magnet ceased publication in 1940. There is an interesting article on the Knockout on P11-18. You can read the booklet here.
