Editor, illustrator and storyboard artist Rick Lundeen did a superb job of realising Terry Nation and Dennis Spooner’s long-lost (as far as we know!) epic serial in comic book form, and the reaction from the vast majority of readers who downloaded the PDFs of each episode was: “when can we get it in print?”
The answer, we hope, is very soon.
With the opportunity to raise over £2500 for Children In Need 2013, Kasterborous has opened pre-orders for Rick Lundeen’s Daleks’ Master Plan comic strip adaptation, a retelling of the original serial in full colour.
The cover price of £19.99 (plus shipping) will deliver to your 168 pages of Dalek malevolence, Mavic Chen madness and the First Doctor at his very best.
• 2019 Update: Sadly, this charity project foundered due to as yet unresolved copyright issues, so we have removed the Kasterborous links – but there is a “Making of” feature by Rick here you can enjoy
