DOOMLORD COLOUR PHOTO IN THE EAGLE HOLIDAY SPECIAL (Fleetway)

An illusion shattered!

This rare DOOMLORD colour pic appeared in the EAGLE HOLIDAY SPECIAL (frustratingly undated) and shows either the Servant of Nox mid-transformation, or that he was just the EAGLE office junior in a fright mask.  You decide.

This hold-over from the photo-strip era (raising the possibility that a lot more colour photos were taken during the various location shoots) shows how slap-dash this one-shot spin-off is: there isn't even the usual publisher information (and all-important copyright details) buried at the bottom of one of the pages.  Which is why I've struggled to date it.

It includes a Storm Force strip which places it after BATTLE's merger with Eagle in January 1988, and a full-page plug for the weekly which means it appeared before the shift to a monthly frequency in 1990.

Just a reminder... My past posts include Doomlord's first 13-part mission to Earth (beginning here) and a long-running set of cover scans (beginning here).
