GERRY ANDERSON'S TV CENTURY 21 COVER GALLERY - PART ELEVEN...
It's a funny thing, but when I look at these covers of TV CENTURY 21,
I tend to think of the house I lived in when the comic first came out in 1965.
However, I moved from that house to another after only 42 or 43 issues, so
you'd think I'd associate them with my new abode rather than my old one.
There are a few covers (not pictured here) that I associate with my new
home (#53 being one of them), but they tend to be the exception rather
than the rule. However, fascinating as that is to me, I'm sure that you
don't give a rat's @rse, so let's talk about the actual comic itself.
The DALEKS appeared on the back page (on any page in fact) for
the last time with ish #104, and I have to say I think it was a mistake to
let them go. I thought the comic was never quite the same again in their
absence. I assume that perhaps it was a cost-cutting exercise, as the
BBC must've charged a fair bit for the use of the scions of Skaro.
Anyway, that's enough padding from me - time to unleash you upon
the covers themselves. As usual, if you have any personal memories
you'd care to share with the rest of us, the comments section awaits.
