TV CENTURY 21 SPECIALS COVER GALLERY...
I've likely shown these covers before, but these scans are new, improved versions from my own personal copies of these half dozen TV CENTURY 21 Specials. The back page below was used again on the next two comics so I've not repeated it, and the final three comics each had different back cover ads. If I remember correctly, I had the first three issues back in the '60s, but I don't recall having the three THUNDERBIRD ones - not that it matters, 'cos I've got 'em all now!
It's a shame there's a smudge on the back cover ad of the final Special, but that's the way it was when I bought most of these replacements many years ago. Funnily enough, I got #s 2-6 all at one go, so the very first issue was the last one I acquired a good 20 years after the others (and around 50 years since I'd bought my original copy back in 1965 - or 2065 if you prefer TV21's dating).
Did you have any of these Specials back in the day, Criv-ite chums, and if so, what (if anything) do you remember about them? Also, did you have any of the toys featured in the ads, and if so, which ones - and what were your favourites? The comments section eagerly awaits your visit.
