Doctor Who’s dangerous rolling foes are heading to print in a new volume. The Daleks classic 1960s comic strips have been digitally restored and now all 104 installments are available in The Daleks: The Ultimate Collectors’ Edition of the Classic 1960s Strip.
“This is the fulfilment of a long-held ambition. I loved this strip as a child and now – having seen the stunning restoration by Doctor Who Magazine art editor Peri Godbold and her team – I admire it even more,” editor Marcus Hearn said. “You can’t really say The Daleks has been restored to its former glory, because I think it now looks better than it’s ever looked before.”
The Daleks comic strip, originally published from 1965 to ’67, was devised by Terry Nation and mostly written by Doctor Who story editor David Whitaker.
The new collector’s edition was digitally restored mostly from the original art. Along with the strips, the book has features about the writers, artists, and publishers who created The Daleks, this includes an interview with artist Ron Turner.
The Daleks: The Ultimate Collectors’ Edition of the Classic 1960s Strip is now available for order at store.panini.co.uk.
