Publisher: City Magazines

Publication Date: January 1965 - September 1969

Country: United Kingdom

Language: English

Notes:
Known principally for featuring adaptations of Gerry Anderson TV shows, it also, until issue 104, featured a Dalek comic strip on the back page. The content given pride of place in the title tended to be stuff based on Stingray, Lady Penelope, Thunderbirds, and Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, among others. It was absolutely crucial in knitting the various Gerry Anderson worlds together.

The basic motif of this classic British sci-fi anthology, was that it was a "faux" newspaper reporting events of 100 years in the future. Thus, dates on the issues (at least in the early years) were given a cover date of a century in the future. Issue one is dated "January 23, 2065", for instance.

This comic is extremely rare, especially in America, and details on it will therefore be sketchy.

At present, the main reason for including this title is to be able to categorize the first appearance of The Dalek Chronicles comic strips, many of which subsequently ended up in Doctor Who Magazine, Doctor Who Classic Comics, and various other Doctor Who titles.

TV (Century) 21 was an oddity amongst 60s British weeklies in that it managed to recruit and hold some high-calibre talent, and it set a standard in the British comics industry that still makes many Britons recall the title fondly. Covers always stated the paper was "EVERY WEDNESDAY", and some sources suggest that it was delivered to newsagents on Thursdays. Nevertheless, like so many British comics of the 60s and 70s, it was cover-dated for each Saturday.

The original publisher was City Magazines, but it switched to IPC sometime rather late in the run. In the week of September 30, 1969, it merged with Joe 90, to become TV 21 & Joe 90. In 1971, both titles were absorbed into the title, Valiant. Though the death knell of the original Gerry Anderson concept had been the name change from TV Century 21 to just TV 21, the final switch to Valiant was the technical end of the title. By the time it became TV 21, it had strayed rather far from its original focus on Gerry Anderson material, and had mostly become a reprint title. It was then usually running only one original strip (Star Trek). This made the name all the more inappropriate as, unlike the Gerry Anderson material, Star Trek wasn't set in the 21st century.

For excellent details of the title during its classic, Gerry Anderson-related period, comicbookdb.com suggests you click through to The Gerry Anderson Complete Comic HIstory website.
