Information thanks to the Grand Comics Database

The Hotspur was a British boys’ paper published by D. C. Thomson & Co. From 1933 to 1959, it was a boys’ story paper; it was relaunched as a comic in October 1959, initially called the New Hotspur, and ceased publication in January 1981.

It relaunched in comic format as the New Hotspur on 24 October 1959, a week after the original series ceased publication, and ran for another 1110 issues until being incorporated into The Victor on 24 January 1981. The new format contained comic strips as opposed to the old text story format. The word “new” in the title was dropped with issue #174. There had been several mergers during the 1970s: with The Hornet in 1976, and with The Crunch in 1980. In January 1981 The Hotspur finally merged with The Victor.
