Another Thunderbirds collection on its way

I noticed this ad in the latest Previews catalogue. It looks like Egmont are releasing a second volume of sixties Thunderbirds comic strips reprinted from TV21. (The first volume was published in 2013 and I reviewed it here.) The promo says it will feature "the first twelve comic strips" by Frank Bellamy. Those early three page strips originally appeared as a double page spread and a black and white page, so it'll be interesting to see how they paginate those. The spread will obviously have to be reprinted as a spread but what will appear on every fourth page opposite the black and white page? A classic TV21 cover perhaps? Time will tell, as the book is due in October.

Other Thunderbirds news today on the Down The Tubes website, regarding Bellamy art being used as prints on clothes! See here:

I seem to recall reading somewhere that Egmont's licence allows them to reprint material taken from the 90s comics rather from the original TV21.

If that's the case then I assume however it was presented in the 90s comics will be how it is presented in this book.

When it came to the three pagers, they ran one an issue, so the problem didn't occur.
