World Distributors Limited was a 20th century publisher based in Manchester, England that printed TOS comics for Great Britain.

World Distributors produced four original TOS stories. One was released in 1971 in an annual for the UK comic strips series. Others were released in a coloring book, press-out puzzle book, and sticker book in 1974.

The company was known for producing a wide range of hardcover comic book collections for licensed properties. It reprinted select stories from Gold Key Comics in high quality on thick paper for a long-running series of Star Trek Annuals between 1969 and 1986. Two "comic albums" in 1972 and 1974 reprinted five of the Gold Key stories in black and white. These books sometimes added a few original pages for younger readers containing short science articles, puzzles and games.

Outside of Star Trek, other notable reprint series featured Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes, Space: 1999, Space Family Robinson, Thunderbirds, and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Original stories were also created for Batman, Flash Gordon, Superman, and many others.
