THE PERRY RHODAN FILES - PART ONE...
Copyright relevant owner
In the mid-'80s, a departing IPC editor gifted me with various goodies which had been lying around his office for years. One such item was a folder containing what seemed to be a 1967 pitch to British Publishers FLEETWAY (might even have been ODHAMS PRESS), to try and interest them in a science-fiction comic strip based on the character PERRY RHODAN.
Perry Rhodan is a comic strip first published in Germany in 1961. Apart from that, I don't know too much about it, and - to be honest - it doesn't grab me enough to want to learn anything more. Apparently there was a movie in 1967, and the folder contains black & white photographic stills from the film (I presume), as well as magazine articles, promotional material, and the first seven issues of a 1967 comic.
Although it doesn't much appeal to me (apart from the blonde), apparently it's extremely popular in several countries. So, for all those who may be fans of the Perry whose surname isn't MASON, or anyone who may be interested, here are some of the contents from the folder I acquired in 1985/'86.
