If any mistakes, errors and omissions, please communicate with me (scarlet1bishop@hotmail.com ) so I would make the proper corrections! I would also be grateful to any of you who might be able to provide me with some scans of those strip, by artists whose drawings don't appear on this page.

Because of the heaviness of the comic strips pages previously posted on this site, I decided to separate the information on many pages instead.  Check at the bottom of this page for the other links.

 

 

COLLECTOR'S CHECKLIST   

 

If you are a collector, looking for all the Captain Scarlet comic strips, you can download for yourself the Captain Scarlet comic strip checklist, which might help you out.  With the exception of the stories which appeared in the Annuals, every Captain Scarlet strip appears onto that list, with the magazine issue(s) in which each part has been published.  On that same checklist, you can also find the titles of the magazines in which some of those same strips were reprinted over the years.  Happy hunting!
