Continuing my look back at Ken Reid's Scorcher strips, here are a few examples of Hugh Fowler, The Man who HATES Football. This strip replaced Ken's previous series, Manager Matt, and Hugh ran in Scorcher from the issue dated 14th August 1971 to 6th May 1972.
Hugh Fowler and his hatred of soccer was a refreshing change from all the football-mad characters that populated Scorcher. However, in the final strip even he changed his mind in some sort of Road to Damascus moment. Ah well, it was good while it lasted.
Here's a cross-reference of all the other series that Ken Reid did for Scorcher. Have fun!
