Television legend Gerry Anderson will be signing the two new volumes of Century 21: Classic Comic Strips From The Worlds Of Gerry Anderson, at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London WC2H 8JR on Saturday 1st May. He will be joined by the series editor Chris Bentley.
From its launch in 1965, TV Century 21 (later known simply as TV 21) was the smash-hit British comic of the 1960s. Thunderbirds, Lady Penelope, Fireball XL5, Stingray and Captain Scarlet all burst forth in full colour from the magazine's packed pages, in stories illustrated by such giants of the comic industry as Frank Bellamy, Don Harley, Mike Noble, Ron and Gerry Embleton.
Gerry Anderson needs no introduction as the creator of the massive number of still hugely popular TV series that include Thunderbirds, Joe 90, Stingray and Space: 1999.
Chris Bentley was Chairman of Fanderson, the Official Gerry Anderson Fan Club, for over ten years. He is the author of The Complete Gerry Anderson and The Complete Book of Gerry Anderson’s UFO.
• The signing runs from 2 - 3.0ppm. More information here on the Forbidden Planet web site
