*Boys’ Adventure & War Comics: Many new additions to the popular D.C. Thomson weekly from the years 1966 to 1968, considerably augmenting our existing stock. While stablemate Victor devoted its ‘historical’ front pages to wartime exploits, Hotspur preferred western tales on the front, with unusual weaponry or ‘White Chiefs’ being recurring themes. Behind the covers, the most famous inmate was probably “The Wolf Of Kabul”, but other series at this time included sports, adventure and sci-fi, with “The Outlaw Olympics” “Firefighter Flynn”, and “The Beetles of Doom”, and comic relief was provided by, oh dear, “The Cheery Cherokees”. It’s heartening to note that the lads of Red Circle School, who originated in Hotspur’s first incarnation as a story paper, were still going strong decades later as the token text story. Nice grades, averaging VG with many Fine copies.
