Not perfect, but still wonderful,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thunderbirds: The Comic Collection (Hardcover)
I was hoping that this collection would be up to the standards of the TV21 collections we've had in the past, with restored artwork and comics sourced from the actual art boards. Sadly the comics presented here are looking a tad faded and muddy and appear to be the same as the Ravette reprints from the early 1990s. That's not necessarily a bad thing.
Still that aside it's lovely to have this weighty collection of 1960s Thunderbirds and Lady Penelope comics from the pages of "TV Century 21", and they make great reading, transporting me back to more innocent days, when heroes wore blue costumes and silly hats and put their lives on the line that others might survive. Fantastic stuff.
I think the Graeme Bleathman cutaways and launch sequences are also from the Ravette reprints... I'll have to check.
I would have given this 5 stars had the artwork been restored or if they had scanned in the original art boards (where they exist).
