Look and Learn

Look and Learn was published weekly by Amalgamated Press. In 1963 the Editor experimented by reprinting some of the (drastically pruned) stories from the Magnet. The Editor received little reader reaction and the experiment was dropped after only 15 issues. The fact he selected sub stories for the first few issues probably contributed to the lack of interest!

Most of the information on this page is taken from the book "Greyfriars Since the Magnet" by Bill Lofts and Derek Adley. You can read the book here.

All the Hamilton issues are available for download via the links below thanks to Bill the Trigan ofthe Scanarama Yahoo group.

Complete issues are indicated by a PDF icon, Issues containing only the Hamilton story are indicated by having the story name hyperlinked.
