THE COMIC STRIP COMPANION 2 – THE UNOFFICIAL AND UNAUTHORISED GUIDE TO DOCTOR WHO IN COMICS: 1979-1990

By PAUL SCOONES

First launched in the pages of TV Comic in November 1964, the comic strip version of Doctor Who is just one year younger than the television series on which it is based. This is its story.

This volume chronicles 11 years of the Doctor Who comic strip from its first appearance in Doctor Who Weekly in 1979, to 1990 shortly after the television series ceased production. During this time, around 100 comic strip stories were published in the pages of Doctor Who Weekly, Doctor Who Monthly, Doctor Who Magazine, The Incredible Hulk Presents and Doctor Who Annual.

Every strip is covered in depth, including plot details, continuity, points of interest and analysis. Details about the creation and development of the adventures are documented, alongside comments from some of the original writers and artists.

Follow the exploits of the Doctor in his fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh incarnations alongside K-9, Sharon, Gus, Frobisher and Peri as he battles Daleks, Cybermen, Ice Warriors, Melanicus, Astrolabus, Klathi and Beep the Meep!

The Comic Strip Companion is your comprehensive guide to Doctor Who in the comics.
