The Okay Adventure Annual was an annual published by The Popular Press for T.V. Boardman and Company. Its original title, used for the 1952 annual, was Ajax Adventure Annual; the next annual was named simply Adventure Annual, after which the name Okay Adventure Annual was used until the 1958 and 1959 editions, which were dubbed the Okay Annual of Adventure Stories.[1]

Boasted good, old-fashioned mid-century tales of derring-do and reprints of American work (particularly from the Quality company).

The annuals themselves are not dated, resulting in a spot of hassle for anyone wanting to figure out what order they were published in.
