*TV & Film Related Comics: Stingray. Fireball Xl5. Thunderbirds. Captain Scarlet. Gerry Anderson’s ‘Supermarionation’ TV shows dominated the consciousness of a generation of children in the 1960s, and the TV Century 21 weekly, launched in 1965 (or ‘2065’ as the covers averred), featured in turn all of those series, illustrated by the finest artists in British Comics, during its 242 issue run. Frank Bellamy, Ron Embleton, Mike Noble, Ron Turner, Keith Watson, Rab Hamilton, Eric Eden and more turned in superlative work in glowing colour, bringing the small screen’s puppet heroes to vivid life. We have one hundred issues of this enduringly popular weekly added to our inventory, many of them filling in previous gaps in our lists. Perhaps of most interest is the #1, which, honestly, has seen better days: an unabashed Poor, its covers are detached, and there is extreme edge and corner wear throughout. The back cover has been torn in half and clumsily taped, and other back cover damage means that portions of the ‘Daleks’ strip are missing. That aside, however, it is otherwise complete, if shabby and downtrodden. The rest of the new influx vary from Fair to Fine/Very Fine, most hovering around affordable mid grades, with light to moderate wear but unmarked cover scenes and clean interiors being the prevailing trend. Any other specific faults will, of course, be noted in our online listings. Illustrated: #1 PR £50, and demonstrating the other end of the spectrum in this new selection, #14 FN/VF £32.50 and #89 FN/VF £27.50.
