Dan Dare has been an icon since 1950. Elaborate stories of his space
travel and galactic battles defending people of the universe captivated
post-War baby boomers. Dan Dare's adventures burst to the forefront of
pop culture, selling nearly 1 million copies each week in the pages of
the Eagle Comic. And now he's back!
Dan Dare is set in
the future, albeit not too many decades from the present day. Colonel
Dare is still vibrant and courageous but now he's retired. His
retirement is a self-imposed exile, the result of his disgust with
politics and the post-nuclear warfare that has destroyed North America
and much of Asia - leaving the UK as the world's last remaining
Readers familiar with Dan Dare stories will recognize many
of the original cast including a wiser and more experienced Digby; the
innovative, brilliant and beautiful Professor Peabody; and of course
the enemy of all that is good, the super-intelligent ruler of the
Treens - The Mekon, together with a mix of galactic evil beings. The
Dynamite Hardcover Edition will feature the complete Ennis/Erskine
series (originally published by Virgin) along with a complete cover
gallery and features a cover by Dave Gibbons.
