The Buzzer

"Claimed to be the biggest boys' paper ever existed, although this was not quite correct, The Boys' Own Picture Gallery 1872 being larger. Quite a good paper containing 8 complete stories every week, plus comic strips in the centre pages. Its most striking feature was its brilliant coloured cover which Newnes hoped, no doubt, would attract many thousands of boys." (W.O.G. Lofts)
