New release: Egmont UK has an exciting new book coming out that will interest fans of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. Gerry Anderson: The Comic Collection is a 288-page hardcover anthology of illustrated stories about characters from Captain Scarlet, Stingray, Thunderbirds, Fireball XL5, and boy-spy Joe 90. It also features essays about artists Frank Bellamy and Mike Noble and a brief history of the strips. Gerry and Sylvia Anderson cooked up the quintessential adventures of the 1960s, capturing Space Age thrills and Cold War intrigue. For Spy Vibers still looking for more Anderson, these comics offer additional tales that didn't appear on-screen. First-generation fans who read the comics will remember that The Man From U.N.C.L.E. appeared in Lady Penelope comics in the UK. I don't believe it is included in either this collection or in the Thunderbirds comic set. Likewise, the TV Action/Countdown titles included cult-classic strips like Star Trek, Land of the GiantsDoctor Who, and Burkes Law. Perhaps more treasures to mine in the future, so stand by for action! Gerry Anderson: The Comic Collection will be published on February 1st. More info at AmazonUS, AmazonUK, and Bud's Art Books.
