In recent years there have been quality reprints of The Trigan Empire from a Dutch publisher, and Titan Books have been reprinting the Dan Dare strips from `Eagle', which has led to an appreciation of Frank Hampson's work (and the reprints have now reached the Frank Bellamy period!). Now, in these Century 21 volumes (volume 5 is scheduled as I type), we have the start of the ongoing reprinting of the classic TV21 stories from the mid-late 1960s, and the high-point of the British comic book (2000AD was a different format and in a different style). TV21 featured stories drawn from the various Gerry Anderson TV series, with a few back-ups created for the comic, but set in the Anderson ‘universe’.
The TV21 format was the same "widescreen" that `Eagle' and its rivals were published in, and the publishers of Century 21 have found the archive of the original artwork, which they are using for these volumes.Read more ›
Lots of stuff from the greatest unsung British comics artist, Mike Noble; very entertaining to watch even this mighty talent fail absolutely to pull off a terrifying version of a giant . . . mouse.
Artists: Mike Noble, Frank Bellamy, Eric Eden, Ron & Gerry Embleton, Don Harley, Frank Langford, Brian Lewis.
Very, very good value and hugely recommended.
One big problem remains: several comics spread over two pages. In TV21 this was not so much a problem with the 16 or 24 tabloid pages. But in a bound book the pictures and text that run near the spine become hard to read and the panels cannot be properly appreciated because you cannot view them flat.
