A classic comic design from the 70's, October 9th, 1971 to be precise. Countdown was the worthy successor to TV21 and featured some great artists, my favourites being John Burns, Ron Embleton and Gerry Haylock. Another bonus was the UFO strip based on the incredibly stylish Gerry Anderson TV series, featuring the SHADO organisation and set in the far-flung future of 1980!

L to R, Manuel, Ian and myself (though I don't
remember being quite that goofy or freckly).
With UFO in mind, one of the most exciting TV intro's ever, in my opinion...
