CLASSIC COMICS: COUNTDOWN #1 - PART ONE...
COUNTDOWN was TV CENTURY 21's natural successor. Not
only did it feature GERRY ANDERSON related strips (in some cases
reprints from its forerunner), it was also edited by DENNIS HOOPER,
who had been the art editor on TV21 itself. However, successor it may
have been, but it wasn't exactly a success, and after about a year, changed
identity by becoming TV ACTION. It managed to survive for another
year and a half or so, and with its demise, DOCTOR WHO returned
to his previous publication, TV COMIC.
For all those who weren't around at the time, here's the first half
of the first issue to give you a taste of it. If it was one of the comics of
your youth, then say hello to an old friend. The second half will follow
in a subsequent post. Countdown starts now!
