When The DALEKS appeared on the back page of TV CENTURY 21 #1, cover-dated 23rd January 2065 (no, that's not a misprint), their appearance wasn't quite the same as it was on television's DOCTOR WHO. They were thinner, with a rounder base and, if anything, they were perhaps even more sinister looking than their TV counterparts. (The Dalek ROLYKINS seem to have been based on the comic's visual representation.) RICHARD JENNINGS had established this look in The DALEK BOOK (which went on sale in 1964), and as he was also the artist (at least to begin with) on the comic's back page, it was only natural that he continued in the same vein.
