'''''Jack and Jill''''' was a British children's comic published by the [[Amalgamated Press]], [[Fleetway]] and [[IPC]] between 27 February 1954 and 29 June 1985, a run of approximately 1,640 issues. "Jack and Jill of Buttercup Farm" was the cover strip for many years, originally drawn by [[Hugh McNeill]] and later by [[Antonio Lupatelli]]. The stories were told in rhyming couplets, although by the end of the 1970s the stories were written in normal prose form. Others were told in captions below the illustrations, a style of storytelling common to pre-war nursery comics such as ''[[Puck]]'' and ''[[The Rainbow]]''.
