PART TWO OF TV TORNADO #1...
When you think about it, TV TORNADO had quite a line-up with-
in its pages - SUPERMAN, BATMAN, The MAN From U.N.C.L.E.,
etc. Trouble was, the real biggies were text stories rather than comic strips,
which is perhaps not the best way to present superhero adventures. It's inter-
esting to speculate on whether the mag might've enjoyed a far longer run had
the artwork been of the same high-quality as in TV CENTURY 21. Can you
imagine Superman and Batman being illustrated by MIKE NOBLE or RON
EMBLETON?! Wow! Of course, whether NATIONAL PERIODICAL
PUBLICATIONS would've allowed anyone else to produce brand-new
tales of their top superheroes is open to question, as is whether CITY
MAGAZINES could've afforded the licensing rights to do so.
Anyway, enough of 'what-ifs?', let's just enjoy the second half of the
first issue of TV Tornado together. Just think, you lucky collectors -
now you have the complete comic to add to your collection.
