Notes:
Horwitz Publications was a large comics publisher between about 1950 and 1966, predominantly reprints from Timely/Atlas/Marvel, but also other publishers, newspaper strip reprints and some local work. Horwitz was founded in Sydney in 1920 and the company rapidly expanded into books, trade journals, community newspapers and magazines. The earliest Horwitz comics were produced under the indicia publishers Associated General Publications Pty. Ltd and Transport Publishing Co., before adopting the more familiar Horwitz Publications Inc. Pty. Ltd. At its peak, Horwitz released nearly 50 comic titles monthly, with print-runs of up to 250,000 copies. The Australian version of MAD Magazine was started in 1980 by Horwitz and is still published by Nextmedia, which acquired Horwitz in 2007. Some reprints of Horwitz comics were published by Page Publications in the late 1960s/early 1970s.
