US

Four different publishers were busy producing Hagar the Horrible books in the US. Charter Books, Jove Books, Tempo Books and Tor Books. Quite a few titles were reprinted between the publishers, sometimes with a different cover. Publishing years also overlapped. I also have a single book published by Grosset and Dunlap in my collection which is a larger paperback. I do not know if they produced any others. I have also recently acquired a giant size book published by Comicana Books (pictured below) and a landscape book "The Very Best of Hagar the Horrible" published in 1982 under the banner of Wallaby Books, a division of Simon and Schuster (Pocket Books). Again, I do not know if these were one-offs or part of a series.

Below is a Gallery of US Hagar the Horrible books by year and publisher. There are a quite a few images missing - if anyone can help with these, please email me.

Many thanks to James McCutcheon for ongoing image contribution
