The vast majority of Hamilton's work has been scanned and is available on line from the Friardale website. However the project has ground to a halt due to the volunteer scanners running out of fresh material to scan. If you have any material you would like to share then please contact me. It doesn't have to be in electronic format, I can still get good results from scanning photocopies or digital photographs. I'm happy to scan any material that is sent to me and I will cover the cost of secure postage both ways.

The list below is not complete but it does cover Hamilton's most popular work. A comprehensive list of Hamilton's phenomenal output can be found in the bibliography section here.

Issues highlighted in red are missing in both original or reprint format and are a priority.
Issues highlighted in black are available in reprint format but not from the original publication.
Issues highlighted in purple are by substitute writers. Whilst not essential it would be nice to have them in order to complete the run.
Issues highlighted in teal are in the collection of current scanners and will appear over time but any assistance in scanning would be appreciated.
