Fireball XL-5

One of my favorite TV shows a s a kid. I had all the toys! Click to make 'em real big and pretty!


  1. From TV CENTURY 21 #s 1-5, Jan-Feb, 1965. Never reprinted anywhere since because Alan Fennell (the editor) didn't think the art was on the same par as Mike Noble's, who took over with #6. (Alan told me this himself back in around '94/'95.)

  2. I didn't know that about the artists. I do agree the later stuff was better but that hardly means this stuff wasn't good!

  3. I like it myself. Despite a few rough spots, it more than makes up in atmosphere what it loses in accuracy as far as the shape of XL5 is concerned.
