The Good Soldier Art for sale

The Good SoldierAnother lot for ebay, this time a page from a three-part Cyberman story "The Good Soldier". This page was published in Doctor Who Magazine #177, cover dated 4th September 1991.

Written by TV Doctor Who script editor Andrew Cartmel, drawn by Mike Collins, I think this is one of the most chilling comic strip pages featuring the Cybermen I ever edited during my time as editor of Doctor Who Magazine.

The strip spanned three issues and was, I recall, one of the first that new-installed Marvel UK Editor-in-Chief offered strong views on in terms of offering inking tips to then newcomer Steve Pini.

You can view a larger-sized version of the page on the main web site
