COUNTDOWN The Space-age comic! -
July 1971

Exactly forty years ago this month, Countdown comic had The Doctor concluding The Vogan Slaves, before starting a new adventure, The Celluloid Midas!

This month saw the first Doctor Who strip on the front cover, as well as a nice behind the scenes photograph, I think from The Deamons.
