Comments: In 1985 the BBC decided the time was ripe to launch a new comic to replace the late lamented TV Comic (and not incidentally grab a share of the successful ITV-connected magazine Look-In's market). Polystyle Publications handled the actual publication, with Dennis Hooper editing, but the title didn't do so well, and cancelled after 20 issues (though not 13 as some reference guides claim - and for any doubters out there, check out this link where you can read the entire 20 issues worth of the Tripods strip).
