The first issue of Shoot! Weekly was dated 16 August 1969, forty years ago today. Although not a comic, per se, it was part of many boys' lives back in the 1970s and into the new millennium. It eventually folded in June 2008 as I reported here.
For those of us who have fond memories of League Ladders, here's the first "on sale" advertising that appeared in various comics that same week.
