Dalek Comic Strip (1965): The Origin of The Daleks!
It’s 1965 and Beatlemania has swept the world. On TV, Gerry Anderson’s Stingray is chronicling the adventures of Aquanaut, Troy Tempest, and The Thunderbirds are awaiting their signal to ‘GO!’ On the newsstands the pseudo newspaper magazine, TV Century 21, launches, mixing stories of real science with comic strip-style stories of TV shows from both sides of the pond.
Presented here are the first 13 strips of The Daleks, scripted by David Whittaker, but credited to Terry Nation who created them for the Dr. Who TV show. For more info go HERE
