GERRY ANDERSON'S TV CENTURY 21 COVER GALLERY - PART FIVE...
I reckon it's time for another ten covers of Britain's best-ever
comic of the '60s - TV CENTURY 21. With a headline that's topical
for today, issue 46 features a photo of one of the fantasy females of my
childhood - ATLANTA SHORE. (Fancying a puppet - I was a right little
perv and no mistake!) I'm sure that most of you will know that LOIS
MAXWELL, alias MISS MONEYPENNY from the JAMES BOND
films, was the voice of hoverchair-bound COMMANDER SAM
SHORE'S daughter - and if you didn't, you do now!
I wish that someone would publish deluxe, actual-size omnibus
collections of at least the first 104 issues of TV21 (when it had The
DALEKS), as it would be good to have sturdy, high-quality volumes of
this classic comic from 100 years in the future. It's increasingly unlikely
it will happen, as the 'nostalgia market' target audience it would appeal
to is dwindling with every passing year. If I ever win the Lottery, I'd
publish them myself - even at a loss - simply because it would be
good to preserve such a treasure for future generations.
Anyway, enjoy the covers on offer, and if you'd like to share
any reminiscences relating to them, feel perfectly free to do so.
