Comic Cuts was a British comic magazine. It was published from 1890 to 1953, lasting for 3006 issues. It was created by the reporter Alfred Harmsworth through his company Amalgamated Press (AP). In its early days, it inspired other publishers to produce rival comic magazines. Comic Cuts held the record for the most issues of a British weekly comic for 46 years, until The Dandy overtook it in 1999.
During its lifetime, the comic merged with many others, including Golden Penny (1928), Jolly Comic (1939), and Larks (1940). Comic Cuts finally disappeared in September 1953 when it was merged with Knockout.
