Swiftsure & Conqueror

 SWIC   (Harrier, 1985-1988)

™ and ©1987 Harrier Publishing

Swiftsure & Conqueror was a uniquely British science-fiction anthology title produced by Harrier Comics. Decidedly low-budget in its production values, it nevertheless gamely ran various space adventure strips in serial form through its eighteen issues. Most were tales of spacefarers exploring alien worlds or facing danger while blazing across space.

In its later issues, the series featured characters from Harrier’s just-cancelled, sister-title Conqueror. The addition of the previous title’s name to the original name, Swiftsure, is longstanding practice in British comics. Although the title often wandered, it occasionally wound up in interesting places, such as the sword-and-sorcery Redfox story in issue #9. The series also featured early work by several well-respected British creators such as Steve Yeowell (2000 A.D.).
