Yes it’s the series that Joe 90 merged into. I must admit that I got confused while collecting them as so many sellers didn’t realise there was a difference between TV Century 21 and TV21! All done now though, so on to the next set!
Thanks and yes,as a collector of comics in general,I get confused between TV Century 21 and TV21.
At the end of the day,surely it's the same comic that evolved?
TV Century 21 becomes TV21 and Joe 90 then becomes TV21 and Valiant??
I could be wrong,am no expert on this publication.
But I have always seen it as 3 volumes.

It was Valiant & TV21 and had Star Trek in full colour in the centre pages. I'm not sure but I think that's the only time Valiant had colour pages inside.

With the original TV Century 21 I bought each copy as it was published and remember towards the end they started putting football photos on the cover. But readers wrote in asking for the newspaper style covers to be reinstated and they were.

Thanks Steve.I only have a few copies and some annuals but have a huge interest in this publication.
Massive fan of the Anderson strips and have books of the reprints.
Plus really want the Star Trek strips.

I’ve finally found that pesky last issue to complete my Fleetway Super Library Secret Agent Series set of 26. I finally now have all 3 sets of the Fleetway Super Libraries. I’m looking forward to reading the last Johnny Nero story!
On to the next one now.
