Roy Race in Buster...?!

As many of you may know, Roy Race from Roy of the Rovers played for a team called the Melchester Rovers, when he was first signed on in Tiger #1 in 1954. Then, in the 1970's he got his own comic, which was very popular - with sales figures of almost half a million a week! In 1990, the comic was still popular, and was occasionally advertised inside other comics, such as Buster, for example. This issue from 1990 doesn't feature an inside advertisement, but Roy does manage to star on the cover story, illustrated by James "Jimmy" Hansen.
