Mike White has had a career in comics that has lasted almost forty years. After drawing Dexter's Dozen for Roy of the Rovers, he took over the lead strip and drew 'Roy' for six years. During White's tenure, Roy broke the record for the most goals scored in league and cup games when, in May 1992, he scored his 436th goal.
Roy of the Rovers comic magazine was launched as a weekly on 25 September 1976, named after the established comic strip of the same name that first appeared as weekly feature in the Tiger on 11 September 1954. The title ran for 853 issues, until 20 March 1993.
