If you're like me, when you saw the golden globed DALEK EMPEROR for the first time in TV CENTURY 21 back in 1965, you probably assumed that it was his debut appearance in comic strip form. It wasn't until many, many, many years later that I discovered he'd previously seen print in The DALEK BOOK in 1964, which, if it followed the pattern of other Annuals, probably went on sale in August or September of that year. Not only do I not recall ever spotting any of the three Annuals in the shops, I also have absolutely no memory of seeing them in the possession of any of my friends or classmates. Mind, I'm not stating categorically that I didn't see them, just that, if I did, I don't remember ever having done so.
