Countdown to the publication of this great new book

Cover to the forthcoming book.
Before 2000AD was launched in 1977, the best British comic of the 1970s was, for me, Polystyle's Countdown comic, launched in 1971 and retitled TV Action a year later. You can read more about it in some of my previous posts here:

The comic is still fondly remembered to this day for its high production values (in its Countdown incarnation) and quality of artwork (John M. Burns, Brian Lewis, Harry Lindfield, etc). Now comics historian Steve Holland is to publish a book covering the history and background of the comic, including an index to the strips. Keep an eye on Steve's Bear Alley Books website for ordering information coming soon:
