Beyond Melchester: Our Favourite Football Comics

For the first (but certainly not the last) time, the Beyond the Touchline team of Denis, Dave and Seb turn their eyes to football comics. But we're putting the obvious on hold just for now - we'll get to Roy of the Rovers eventually. For now, we're exploring our favourite football comic strips that don't star a member of the Race family. So join us as we take a trip through a select ten of the best - from Goalkeeper to Goalmouth, Hamish & Mouse to Jack & Jimmy, the Hard Man to the Playmaker, and a lot more besides!
