Thunderbirds Are Go - on October 14th

Here's the eye-catching cover to the new Thunderbirds are Go magazine that will launch in UK newsagents on Wednesday 14th October. 

Published every four weeks by D.C. Thomson the new title is based on the re-imagined TV series which is due to return to CiTV soon. It promises to feature comic strips, although at this point I'm not sure if that means illustrated or screen-grab photo strips, or both. From the cover line it looks as though it'll contain an adaptation of the first episode, Ring of Fire

The mag will also contain posters, fact files, and activity pages. It'll also come with a free mini-model of Thunderbird 1 which is sure to be collectable. It's great to see D.C. Thomson launching a new comic magazine, and with it focusing on the popular Thunderbirds brand let's hope it's as successful as previous comics that featured the concept. 

Subscriptions to Thunderbirds Are Go are already available for pre-order here at the D.C. Thomson shop.

Good news, DCT seeing some potential in the youth market is a great thing.

Agreed. They'll also be publishing a Danger Mouse comic soon:

It's out early. Saw it in McColls today.

It's not around here, but then we don't have a McColls. Any strips in it?

Didn't buy it, and it was bagged, so I couldn't check. Sorry.
