Official Project 21 Release Thread

I thought I'd create a thread where Project 21 members can post releases of their freely available Gerry Anderson / TV Century 21 comic scans. I hope this is acceptable!

Thanks to hard-working Project 21 scanners such as Gogath, Herman Munster, Mycroft IV, Piggygruntebeest, Sadgeekymuppet and Sigasahab.

Each comic is usually packaged as a cbz or cbr file (a renamed zip or rar archive of images). If you're unfamiliar with how to open cbr/cbz files, you need a free comic viewer such as CDisplay or CDisplayEx.

TV Century 21 (known as TV 21 from September 1968) was a weekly British children's comic of the 1960s and early 1970s. It promoted the many television science-fiction puppet series created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson's Century 21 Productions. The comic was published as if it were a newspaper from the future, with the front page usually given over to fictional news stories set in the worlds of Thunderbirds, Fireball XL5, Stingray, Captain Scarlet and other stories.

Many of the leading British comic book artists worked for the magazine, including Frank Bellamy, who drew two-page-spread adventures of Thunderbirds, Don Harley, Mike Noble, Ron Embleton, Gerry Embleton, Keith Watson, Ron Turner, Rab Hamilton, James Watson, John Cooper, and the team of Carlos Pino and Vicente Alcazar under the pseudonym "Cervic".

Here is a complete, upgraded and corrected set of the first 52 issues of the classic weekly TV Century 21. For the mathematically challenged, that's a whole year's worth!

Yes, thanks for that. The nice thing with TV 21 was all the photos that you only saw published in TV21 so they are a great reference source in their own right.

Thanks to Slinky for posting the fruits of our labours over a two year period, with luck there will be LOTS more goodies coming this way from our poor overheated scanners sometime in the future.

Anyone interested in finding out more about us or BETTER STILL joining in with our Project should check out this link.

Again top stuff from you guys but please do support the new TV21 books coming out officially. For less than 'tenner' they are going to be well worth it. When things are unavailable and only available for others to enjoy in a format like this at no cost I applaud it but this sort of thing, as good as it may be, is no substitute for a tangible piece of merchandise. I am not knocking the PROJECT 21 fellas at all and am especially pleased that it took these guys to rid this place of someone who was clearly not deserving of membership here. It's like the old bootleg thing with the Beatles. Before 'ANTHOLOGY' was released bootleg tapes, albums and CDs were the only way to hear rare unreleased tracks and I bought them whenever I saw them. However I was first in line at my local record shop when the official release was available. I've bought bootlegs since but only of music still unreleased. It is a shame that we do seem to live in a world of knock off, rip offs or copycats when in reality most of it is readily available in a shop for perhaps just a few quid more.

The problem with the reprint volumes IMO is that they are bound to 'cherry pick' at least our way you do get to see EVERYTHING and while some of it may not be so great its all of historic importance.:thumbup:

I agree 100% that as these books will not likely carry the old ads, photos, support strips and features etc these PROJECT 90 guys are doing Anderson fans a huge favour. What my point was is that people should still support official product to and not just have a load of downloaded files and yet claim "I love TV21 I am a huge fan". It's a bit like being the 'greatest Arsenal fan in the World' yet never having gone to a game or bought a single piece of official club merchandise.

Countdown was a British comic book that ran for 132 issues from 20 February 1971 to 25 August 1973.

The pages in each issue were numbered in reverse order with page 1 at the end.

Countdown was edited by Dennis Hooper, who had been the original art editor on TV 21. Countdown was obviously a rival to Look-in at the time (1971), which ironically was being edited by Alan Fennel, the original editor of TV 21!

Countdown was quite a coup for Polystyle, its publishers, as they had gained the licence to use Gerry Anderson strips after TV 21 (on its last legs by then) relinquished it. However, after the real-life moon landing of 1969, kids were less interested in space fantasy and although Countdown was an excellent comic, it was out of its time.

The title changed to TV Action a year later, emphasising action shows like Hawaii 5-0 and The Protectors. It continued the numbering from Countdown, but eventually merged into TV Comic after 130 or so issues.

Nevertheless, Countdown/TV Action is worth seeking out for great artwork by Harry Lindfield, John Burns, Brian Lewis, and others, plus better than average scripts for comics of that period. Later issues of Countdown also reprint some early TV 21 strips.

Although not a huge success by any means, Countdown was the best adventure comic of the 1970's in my opinion.

TV Action was a comic that continued from Countdown. It featured strips based on TV programmes such as Doctor Who and Gerry Anderson's UFO.



Thanks to the scanners! Not all of these scans are necessarily Project 21 scans, perhaps they can clarify.

Well as I recall before Project 21 there was 'The Countdown Project' though I personally had little to do with it other the putting up links rapidly grabbed by 'others' many of the Project 21 team were involved Mycroft in particular as well as a guy named Paul and my old pal Wonga who enjoyed hiding his name throught verious issues ( have fun looking for it !).

Sorry if I left anyone out, i'll come back and add any other names as they come to me.

Thanks to the Project 21 team for not only scanning the material, but also for putting the links up on here for us all to share.

I currently have four books on pre-order from Amazon, both the TV 21 reprints, the Chris Bentley UFO book, and the new Supermarionation book from Masterspy. I like to have the feel of a book in hands if truth be told, but being as I never had any of the TV 21 comics, the scanned and downloaded versions will have to suffice.

TV Comic

TV Comic was a British comic book published weekly between November 9, 1951 and June 22, 1984 for 1696 issues. With its bright eye-catching covers it featured stories based on television shows running at the time of publication. It is notable for printing Doctor Who stories from 1964 to 1979 (except for 1971 to 1973 when he was in Countdown/TV Action). It also featured strip cartoons for the early Gerry Anderson TV shows Four Feather Falls, Supercar and Fireball XL5. Each issue also featured a page of readers' letters and photographs.



Thanks to the scanners! Not all were necessarily scanned by the Project 21 team. A handful of the scans are partial/incomplete, but they are labelled as such.

Chris Bentley's UFO book is available all over the place as either soft cover or hardback and has been for a few years. There are half a dozen on eBay right now so I would certainly contact whoever it is you have it on order with. You sure you are not thinking of a cutaway book that he is providing text for? That has been delayed a bit for sure. There are loads of the regular UFO book on Amazon too mate.

Didn't want to hijack BTW just answering a members query!!
