THE DRIFTING COFFIN - A RON TURNER XL5 ADVENTURE...
Above is the cover illo from the FIREBALL XL5 Annual for 1966, illustrated by mighty MIKE NOBLE. This was the last of four COLLINS Annuals based on GERRY ANDERSON's space-themed puppet programme, which first aired back in October 1962.
From that Annual comes the following adventure, entitled The DRIFTING COFFIN, drawn by rollickin' RON TURNER, who was responsible for the art chores on quite a few Anderson strips over the years. It's easy to see why - he's pretty durn good!
So sit up straight, ensure there's some ice in your glass - and thank B. SMITH for 'requesting' this titanic tale of the fabulous Fireball XL5 and her cataclysmic cosmic crew.
