The official fan club for Thunderbirds co-creator Gerry Anderson, Fanderson, officially launched its new online Forum to replace the club’s ageing Yahoo group yesterday (on the 10th anniversary of the day the earth was blown out of Earth’s orbit in Space: 1999!).
The new online offshoot for the popular club – which has featured Anderson-related comics coverage in the past – consists of a public forum that anyone can join and contribute to and also a private forum for paid up Fanderson members only.
