Following on from Grif's comment in the last post about the large rocket in the first TV21 Fireball Xl5 strip, I though it would be timely to re-post this bloglet by WOTAN first posted in April 2009 [text in italics added today by Woodsy].
From WOTAN: Going through early TV21s, I spotted an early appearance of the Nuclear Ferry in Fireball XL5 (top), almost certainly based on Bob McCalls artwork, details of which are inserted at either corner in small boxes for comparison. What are those two antennae at the top? telecommunications?
Also in the very first issue (bottom), Ron Embleton gives us the beautifully sleek Submarine Aircraft Carrier [made into a super cool toy by JR21].
