*Younger Readers’ Comics: Of the many comics adaptations of Gerry Anderson’s TV oeuvre, one of the more obscure is Candy, a Younger Readers’ series which focussed on a show which never actually happened. Legend has it that Anderson tried to sell a juvenile series, “Candy and Andy”, for which extensive prop and costume work was done, and when no TV producers took it up, used it instead as the basis for the third ‘Century 21’ comic, after TV 21 and Lady Penelope. Frankly, given the stills from the show which adorn the covers, the characters come across as more creepy than cuddlesome, but nevertheless the comic lasted 150+ issues, enhanced by the media presence of co-stars Topo Gigio, Tingha and Tucker, and Winnie the Pooh. The unusual landscape format makes these rarer than most Anderson-related memorabilia. We have a couple of earlier issues, #8 and #10, new in, then a selection from the #30’s to #50, including the Christmas issue from 1967 (pictured).
