Notes
Most issues are reprints from the US Classics Illustrated series from Gilberton. However, some issues appeared in the British series before they did in the American. After the American series was cancelled several new titles appeared in the British and European series.

When reprinting issues, some issues were dropped, resulting in multiple issues, such as two versions of #152.
