5...4...3...2...1 !

Back in 1992 I had the great pleasure of working with Alan Fennell on Thunderbirds - and with Keith Page, who re-drew a lot of the faces on this, my first Thunderbirds story! I don't know why, but he did, and here's an example!

Nice dynamic layouts Nigel! I didn't follow Thunderbirds comic all the time as it was "younger" in tone than TV21 or Countdown had been, but it's a shame there's nothing of that standard around today. Redan's Thunderbirds comic aimed even younger of course, and now there's very little, adventure wise, for kids to buy. (Doctor Who Adventures comes to mind, but it's much more lighthearted than the Dr.Who strips of old.)

Too bad ITV ruined the chances of the new Captain Scarlet TV series by hiding it within another show. The spin-off comic was good, albeit using screen grabs, but only lasted six issues.
