End of The Road for End of The Road for "Thunderbirds" novels !
Sadly it looks like we have seen the last published of Joan Marie Verba's brand new "Thunderbirds" novels from the U.S.A. Joan reports Granada Ventures seem unwilling to renew her licence to publish due to sales which didn't perhaps meet their expectations. Or are they not wanting to see confusion betwene the 'classic' series and their proposed new series beginning next year ? Joan must be congratulated for bringing her dream to market !

Promotional brochure


This is an A4-size eight-page 'flyer' produced by Engale Marketing to promote interest in their upcoming "Action 21" title. Three pages are intentionally blank but the others feature black and white artwork (illustrated) plus two full colour "TV21" spreads featuring Mike Noble's "Fireball XL5" and Ron Embleton's "Captain Scarlet"

Issue Ten


Sadly, the final issue. Publisher David Nightingale said: "TV21 meant so much to me in my childhood that bringing it back, albeit under a slightly different name, was probably the biggest thrill of my publishing career. Tribute must be paid to artist Graham Bleathman and writer Graeme Bassett who brought the whole package together and also to the 1960s originators such as artists Frank Bellamy, Ron Embleton, Mike Noble and writers Alan Fennell and Dennis Hooper (amongst many others). I hope we captured a little bit of the magic in our ten issue run."
