Doctor Who - Nova comic strip ( DW Staff Approved)
TV Comic issues 1139 -1147, 13 Oct - 8 Dec 1973
Writer and artist unknown
Jon Pertwee as The Doctor
This comic strip story, 'Nova,' featuring the image of Jon Pertwee, the best actor to ever play The Doctor, appeared in TV Comic issues 1139 -1147 (13 Oct - 8 Dec 1973). The TV series was off air at the time. An interesting point is that the villains in the tale, the Spidrons (not to be confused with any you might see on TV in The Tomorrow People) looked remarkably like the Mekon (of Dan Dare fame), but with one difference...
Having formerly been in Countdown Comic, the Doctor Who comic strip now returned to TV Comic - where it looked very out of place among the Tom and Jerry type of stuff that otherwise filled its pages.
My thanks to the original scanners for their hard work and to Davveywolf for permission to upload. I originally uploaded this story in jpg format some time ago, but a few people requested it in pdf format.
