Last Updated: Friday 25th September – Episodes 8, 9 and 18 Located

The team at Doctor Who Magazine are working on a bookazine collection of the TV Century 21 strip “The Daleks” – and we’re boosting their request for help sourcing as many original boards.

Initial appeals made on Facebook have already unearthed boards, which is great to hear!

This new, long awaited collection will be a book, not a magazine like the previously-published and much sought after Dalek Chronicles published by Marvel UK in the 1990s.

The collection will feature all 104 strips published in TV Century 21 in the 1960s, a tale charting the rise of the Daleks, as told by Doctor Who script editor David Whitaker, with art from Richard Jennings, Eric Eden and Ron Turner.

What follows is a list of art boards from “The Daleks” still being sought for the upcoming Panini collection. Several generous comic art collectors have already responded to initial appeals I’ve already made on Facebook – and I have passed on contact details, and several leads supplied, thank you!

If you can help, please drop us a line with contact info we can pass on. Thank you!

I’ll aim to update this post if new finds are offered.

Boards for the strips that ran in TV Century 21 Issues, 9, 18, 89 and 90 were sold last year by Chiswick Auctions. Did you buy the Ron Turner boards - and could you please help support the planned collection?
