Retro Comics: TV CENTURY 21 and COUNTDOWN issue #1


I am a huge Gerry Anderson fan. His genre epics like UFO, SPACE 1999, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Stingray where just the best things ever when I was growing up. Had all the toys, games, annuals, models and loved them all with a passion. But what I remember the most were the comic spin-offs which serialised his creations. TV CENTURY 21 and COUNTDOWN were my absolute favourites and were published in broadsheet format on quality paper. Typing this I can even remember that particular smell comics had back then. Noticed a few on eBay. Tempted...
