Notes:
The earliest comics from Young's Merchandising Company were published around 1947, including Australian original material and reprints of US comics. Young's is also known for its Larry Kent crime novels (commenced in 1954), based on the Sydney radio series created by Ron Ingleby. The company folded soon after the death of its founder, Charles Young, in 1963. Little is known about the company, which appears to have been involved in a range of non-publishing endeavours.
