Introducing the Yaffa Publishing Group and Page Publications

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, the Yaffa Publishing Group produced a range of mainly reprint comics under "Yaffa" and "Page" imprints or company divisions.

David Yaffa founded his company around 1925 with the publication of Newspaper News (later AdNews), an advertising and marketing magazine. The Yaffa Syndicate's earliest comics involvement was the distribution of newspaper strips from King Features Syndicate (such as Flash Gordon, Brick Bradford and Mandrake the Magician). Page Publications, the imprint of most of Yaffa's comics, was established as a separate entity in the 1960s.

Yaffa's first actual comics were published in the mid 1960s, with the predictable compilations of its US newspaper strips. The company's publishing output also included Australian comics originally created for other publishers (such as Catman by John Dixon) and reprints of US comics (such as Don Winslow of the Navy).
