1990: THE DOCTOR WHO NEWSPAPER STRIP THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN

Remember the DOCTOR WHO newspaper strip?  Nope?  Well, it didn't happen.  But it almost did.  

In the late eighties, despite the declining fortunes of the TV show (cancelled in 1989), Marvel UK tried to flog a Doctor Who strip to the British press.  Unsurprisingly there were no punters but the end results were published in DWM in 1990.

The Abslom Daak covermount flexidisc was based on the Marvel UK-created Dalek Slayer and concocted to coincide with the release of the Daak graphic novel (house ad below), collecting his exploits-to-date.
