UPDATE- Review: Thunderbirds The Comic Collection more pictures added and comments..




The stories and cutaways inside book...(I've finally got a scanner again and its the first time I've used it...good news for me)

I was sent a copy and thought the book was very well done... it was very kind of them to send me one...and also the Thunderbird postcards...


It has brilliant artwork and very readable...
 The Thunderbird comic strip is so unusual and dramatic...lots of exciting framing....also its great to have them all together so you can follow the story and cliffhangers....loads to read....what an amazing comic TV 21 was...also all in a nice painted colours...a big book to read and reread...


The Thunderbirds strip is very exciting and grips you from the beginning...it can have larger crowd scenes and more running then the tv show. It must of left you desperate to find out what happens next each week..
I was born in 1974 so my experience of Thunderbirds is in the early 90's when it was repeated and Blue Peter did the Tracey Island make...
So these stories are new to me. I've read the reprint books of Dan Dare so know Frank  Bellamy work. So nice to see his 60's work as well.

The book contains great cutaways of the different Thunderbirds....with info of the different parts. A bit like what Eagle comic did in the 50's centre pages. Which is a great feature for the book. Also Tracey Island and Creighton-ward Stately Home is covered in this way...








 Its fun the readers letters to Lady Penelope and Parker talking about the stars of the time..like Danger man Patrick McGoohan...it bring the characters even more to life.
  The pages are soo dramatic they almost come out off the page at you..in a 3D way!!


 Sample of what it is like on the back of postcard....

 Nice unusual postcards like the painting in the background...great details in this puppet series made it great fun...and real in a way..

The postcards of Thunderbirds are great to send or you could blue tac them and fill a whole wall...I've done this with postcards in my bathroom and kitchen....its a brilliant idea!!!

Oh-No!! its Mega Belly by Tom Paterson and other gems..Thank you AlfieLarge

http://www.comicsuk.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5258&start=45
Also there is  a Lew Stringer page and others from Oh-No! comic follow link..

Tom's work was at its peak and what a lovely surprise to see this gem...
This is from Oh-No! comic which never came out But was tested out to see what school children thought..it was all very positive though sadly never released due to change of company...One of the worst things to happen to comics....a horrible moment...loads of comic artists had to retire or go to DC Thomson or others for work.

Go to comicsuk forum to read up on it all..


 He looks a little bit like Calamity James!!!!
