Future Tense started life as a weekly SF-based title published by Marvel UK which ran from 5th November 1980 until July 1st 1981, after which (from issue #36) it moved to monthly frequency. The final issue was #41 (January 1982). Along the way, Future Tense effectively absorbed two shorter-lived sister titles, the war-themed Forces in Combat and the fantasy-themed Valour, arguably somewhat diluting it as a science fiction comic.
All the strip content consisted of reprints of American Marvel material, including (to begin with) The Micronauts (which continued directly on from its previous runs in Star Wars Weekly and Star Heroes), Seeker 3000, Paladin and Warlock. The Micronauts continued to appear right up to the final monthly issue, but the other original strips were gradually replaced by others, including:

Star Lord (no connection to the Fleetway title or character, for which see Star-Lord)
Star Trek (beginning with Marvel’s adaptation of Star Trek the Motion Picture and continuing with new stories)
Rom (from Forces in Combat)
Weirdworld and Conan (both from the pages of Valour)
Captain Marvel

    Boutje,
    Were you aware that the MediaFire dl for FT-V, “uk-fut01” only
    contains an image-folder for Issue #27 (1981-05-06)? And that
    the dl for “uk-fut02” an image-folder for #34 (1981-06-24)?
    Leemcdaid’s (2018-03-05) link is kapute, also (dang it). Sorry for
    the notice. Do you have that file by Leemcdaid, available?

    On a Happy Note… the other links had the cbrS as shown. And the
    downloads worked great.

    ZipComics (DOTcom), & ReadComicOnline (DOTto), both have a
    simular problem with this series. They have all issues… except
    for numbers 20 – 35. The issues that I seek. At least, the ones that
    have chapters of “Weirdworld” in them.

      Perhaps some went wrong with downloading. I just download both packs, 61mb and 72mb with issues 23,24,27,30,31,33,34,41 and they were good for me, i can read them with both CDisplayEx and with Comicrack.

        Boutje,
        My appologies, about erroneously reporting those two rarS
        as possibilly being damaged. But many thanks for your
        reply. And double checking them.
        { Future Tense / Valour … “uk-fut01” & “uk-fut02” }

        B1-Archiver, 1st time it has let me down. It has a Pre-view
        function that I use often. All other dl’d rars showen as they
        should have. But not those 2. Thawing them resulted in as
        I mentioned above. Re-did the dls with same responce. Even
        used a different browser. Same again. But, knew you said
        you double checked them, so thought maybe it was my ISP
        or some such thing. *** Are you ready for this… ***
        Went back to the original dls, and thawed them with actual
        WinRAR program. And there were the CBRs, as should be.
        Utillity error, sheeesh! Makes 1 feel like an “ass”, for not
        thinking to try that before making an incorrect post.

        Will try to not do such again, hopefully.
        Respectfully… Alfie.

          Sometimes utilities and settings works in strange ways. No problem at all, i am glad that you report problems, so i can try to keep the links working and find damaged files. So not to worry about erroneously reports.
