The Hotspur Comic Stories Reviews Page

Last updated October 2021

The above image is from the 1967 Hotspur Annual. Please note I have added the Hotspur title and wording 'Story Reviews' to the picture.

Welcome to the new reviews page for Hotspur stories! Each of the reviews below has as an introduction to the story, writer and artist information (if known) and any other interesting trivia titbits. Each review is rounded off with a complete episode(s) from that story. It is hoped that the review will give the reader a flavour of each story and of the various characters.

The lastest reviews have been posted below. For previous reviews please refer to the lower part of the page.

Please note that the reviews are arranged A to Z by title. Words in the title such as 'the' have been ignored as far as the A to Z arrangement is concerned. For example, the title 'The Blazing Ace of Space' has been indexed under 'B' and can be found in the A to L reviews section.

SPOILER ALERT - Please note that the reviews of the various strips below outline storylines and conclusions of each series.
