The Hornet Index.

Last Updated June 2014. Note this is very much a work in progress page.

Please note that no Hornet annuals or summer specials were published. This index is a work in progress.

I would also like to thank the following people who have provided me with information for this index - Jeremy Briggs, Steve Holland, Ray Moore and Jim Croasdale.

Notes on how to use this index.

  • Note - issue 588 is missing from the British Library's collection of Hornet Comics, thus I haven't been able to index this issue.

    Last issue of the Hornet is number 648.

    The index below is arranged A to Z by strip title, character and subject headings. Search for characters and artists by their surname.

    Please see the diagram below for explanation of how each entry should be read.

    Subject Headings include:-

  • Artists#
  • African themed stories
  • American themed stories
  • Australian themed stories
  • Canadian themed stories
  • Characters# series (that is, a character and main supporting cast (but not necessarily every character to appear in the series), appearing in one or several series in The Hornet).
  • Complete# one issue stories
  • Cover# stories of The Hornet, front and back.
  • Factual#, true stories
  • Far East# themed stories
  • Football# Teams
  • Games# (that is, "board games" published in the comic and annuals).
  • Historical# stories (Ancient; Medieval; Elizabethan).
  • Humorous# Stories
  • Indian themed stories (that is, the country India).
  • Middle East themed stories
  • Military# Medal Winners (true stories)
  • Norwegian themed stories
  • Police# Stories
  • Quizzes#
  • Secret# Service stories
  • Sci-fi# stories
  • Sport# stories
  • Text# stories (non-picture stories)
  • Western# stories
  • World War One# (fiction stories)
  • World War Two# (fiction stories)

    Note, if you are searching for a subject heading place an '#' after the first word to aid searching. For example, Artists# or Military# and so on. For World War One and Two stories, type World War One# and World War Two#.

    (Note I have now also added a '#' after each letter for example, A#, B# and so on, to assist with searching.)

    If your looking for a particular artist, look under the artist heading. For those wanting to know more about various artists, please check - Artist Identify page.

    Please note that there may be a few errors in the index, for which I apologise in advance. (I'll be proof reading and amending the index when time allows). But to the best of my knowledge the information below is accurate. If anyone spots any mistakes, please let me know.
