Notes

Ayers & James was an importer of US goods (including magazines) that transitioned to publishing during the period of WWII import restrictions. It produced a range of "Yank" titled comics, reprinted Classics Illustrated in Australia, and published some original Australian comics. Use of the publisher name ceased in 1953, but further comics were published under a range of trading names or successors—such as Red Circle Press, Illustrated Publications, Approved Publications and others.
