Supercar and TV Comic

An early edition of TV comic complete with its unused cardboard Supercar
model and a photocopy of the model built.
Right, 18th March 1961 the first Supercar strip in TV comic.
As you can see it was originally a three colour strip in black,white and red, although it moved to full colour later.
   TV Comic 507, 2nd September 1961, the final 2/3 colour pages of Supercar, artists
name T Watts.
Here Mike and the crew are much more like standard comic characters, in the way that they are drawn.TV










Comic 508,
9th September 1961, Supercar in full colour, a change of artist to "Mevin" and all the characters are now as they appear on screen.




Next is the final appearance
of Supercar in TV Comic
issue 667
26th September 1964.
A sad occasion really
as TV21 treat Supercar
as a bit of a joke and
didn't do it the justice that TV Comic had done.

Mike and the
Supercar team
shown in the last
panel above.
