TWO TIME AGENTS ... NOW AT YOUR NEWSAGENTS!

Okay, so that wasn't really an advertising line but between 1979 and 1981 the enigmatic Sapphire and Steel indeed transferred from TV to the pages of weekly British comic Look-In for a run of brand new assignments.

TV Tie-in comic strips are so often of dubious quality, dropping elements of the original programme's format, simplifying it for a juvenile audience. While there were slight alterations made for Sapphire and Steel, what was presented in comic strip form was nonetheless very close to the original premise. Imaginative and sometimes unsettling storylines were married to precise yet dynamic artwork. For 76 colour two-page episodes artist Arthur Ranson and scripter Angus P Allan produced a classic strip series to beautifully complement the on-screen adventures.
