ACTIVE CLUB – ACTIVE JIM CLUB

A fan club organized by Bell Features under its Active Comics banner. Its name later changed to “Active Jim Club”. It was probably managed by Adrian Dingle as part of his duties. It was basically a communication between members.

The “Active Club” became the vehicle through which Bell sponsored a hockey club called “The Panthers”. See PANTHERS [THE].
