Jack Kirby’s hot take on a #Dalek

T138_Orikal

The circumstantial evidence for the Dalekness of Orikal includes- its speech pattern, identical to comic book versions and some book version of how-Daleks-talk; it is from another universe; the reference to the eternal time stream, the pattenr on its indistinct arms is somewhat like the globular hemispheres on a Dalek casing, and indeed reducing the body to its simplest outline it is less a crouching figure and much more distinctly pepper pot shaped…

1966 saw the release of a Dalek movie in America, and Kirby was a voracious consumer of media, especially off the wall media. Also this was the period when Marvel tried to set up a British base, and in the course of that exchange it is virtually impossible to think that no Doctor Who information appeared on their radar. It was the summer of not just the Beatles but also Dalekmania!

 

Why do people still buy Marvel and #DC when they no longer resemble what they once were in any way?
