With its free gift of  a 'Speed Plane', Speed comic zoomed onto the newsagents shelves dated 23rd February 1980. Speed promised  "8 stories that will make you gasp", and unsurprisingly based most of its stories around speed. The first stories to appear were 'Topps On Two Wheels', 'Quick On The Draw', 'Journey To The Stars', 'Death Wish', 'The £l,000,000 Challenge', 'Speedboy', Baker's Half-Dozen' and 'The Fastest Footballer On Earth'.

The last issue of Speed was dated 25th October. Speed was incorporated into Tiger comic and became Tiger and Speed.
