Target Capaldi - series ten - part two

We've reached the halfway point of Doctor Who series ten and the vault is still harbouring its deadly secret...

Part one is here.





Gay Comic - from TV's UFO

Back in the 60s TV Century 21 comic begat a sister comic for girls entitled 'Lady Penelope'. It had a similar format to its brother - a mix of TV sourced comic strips and features but with a more feminine bent. 

Flash forward to 1970 and the launch of Countdown which took Gerry Anderson's UFO as its base for a comic similar in content to TV21. There was no sister comic for girls this time round though... 

or was there?

Doctor Who Target Book Covers Recreated - part three

These seem to have been popular. I've done some more - with mixed results. 

Particularly pleased with the Claws of Axos - done using alternative photo references to the ones on Chris Achilleos' original. 

Also the one from Inferno. I've never really liked the finshed original cover - the figure work looks a bit off to me but I do like the imagery. 

The Three Doctors offers a 'different' take on Omega's hands.

As for The Dalek Invasion of the Earth... I'm not sure I should've even started that one now. I went a bit TOO pop art with it...
