Scion were a British publisher founded by Binyamin Immanuel and his wife Esther Benjamin in 1948, during the period when wartime paper restrictions were gradually easing but import restrictions meant foreign comics remained in short supply. The couple had previously published Smasher Comic (1946) under the name C. A. S. Ltd, and Top Notch Comic (1947) under the name Apex Publicity.

Titles included the "Big" series of one-shots (1948-49):

The "Hero" series of one-shots (1951-52):


The company also published paperbacks. It was sold to the Henry Squires conglomerate in 1954, and ceased to exist in 1956.
