Notes

This Auckland-based publisher reprinted comics from Australia's Magazine Management group and the comics are almost identical to their Australian editions. Some editions have different page counts or pricing.

Around 1958, New Zealand restricted the importation of some Australian magazines. These bans continued until at least 1959. [Reported in Associated Newspapers Limited annual reports, 1958-1959]. Trans-Tasman Magazines appears to have been established at this time, possibly by Magazine Management, to get around the restrictions. The company continues until at least the early 1960s.
