Redan Thunderbirds Comics 2000 -

In 2000, the Redan Company, somewhat surprisingly acquired, the license to publish a Thunderbirds comic and the first couple of issues were published just before Christmas. Unlike previous comics featuring the series, such as TV21, Countdown or even thunderbirds: the Comic, Redan's comic is aimed at a pre-school readership, in line with other publications from the Group. The result is bold artwork, simplified photo stories and numerous puzzles, quizzes and competitions.

However, if it is an Anderson comic, it must almost by definition feature cross-sections! The first five issues featured reprints of Thunderbirds 1-5 from the 'Thunderbirds FAB Cross-sections' book. From issue 6 onwards, new Bleathman cross-sections have been produced. To reflect the style of the magazine and the tiny budget allocated to such things, the new cross-sections are simply drawn in black and white and then coloured by Redan's production staff.
