Book Description

27 April 2009
It's chocks away once again as Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future, returns! First published in classic British comic Eagle, this is perhaps the most seminal adventure of one of Britain's best-loved characters, presented in a gorgeous library edition. When transmissions are disrupted throughout the Solar System and spaceships - including one carrying Sir Hubert - disappear, Dan and Co set out to discover what's going on. They find a fleet of huge alien craft containing peaceful aquatic creatures called Cosmobes, who are fleeing from another aquatic race, the warlike Pescods. But the Pescods have a deadly weapon, the 'Crimson Death' and they're heading for Earth! Will Dan and his crew be able to once again save the day?

Product Description


"* "Frank Hampson's Dan Dare is the most thrilling and accomplished work ever published in the comics form in Britain." - Philip Pullman, His Dark Materials "Frank Hampson is one of the unsung geniuses of the Twentieth Century." - --Terry Jones (Monty Python)"

About the Author

Frank Hampson was perhaps best known as the creator and original artist for Dan Dare, but he also illustrated a number of children's books for Ladybird. Dan Dare was first published in the British comic The Eagle in April 1950, and was last published as an ongoing series in 1996 - although Dan had undergone more than a few changes by then.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bring back Eagle 20 July 2009
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
With the recent resurgence of Dan Dare though the use of computer graphics, fans have been swarming to regain touches of nostalgia either through the modern cartoon or, perhaps more commonly, by obtaining these re-releases of the original pages that appeared in The Eagle. Following a classic adventure with Dare facing off against the Mekon in his own indomitable style and whilst this offering from April 1950 may still appear dated to the modern reader it's a huge influence on the whole Brit explosion of the 80/90's that took us across the world including influencing modern names such as Moore.

If you're short for that gem for either Christmas or even for a special birthday this hardback will present you with something special then make sure you pick up some dib dabs, or flying saucers and present those with this book to the older Sci-Fi fan in your life. I did that to my Dad when I lent it to him and to see his face transferred back to the cheeky one that stares back at me in the old black and white photo's of the fifties and you've got that something special that really is priceless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Dan Dare: Phantom Fleet 23 Dec 2009
As per usual, and, from a purely personal point of view, this is thoroughly enjoyable and brings back many happy memories from my school days, when we were able to read the Eagle comic. Thank you for this series of books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memories are made of this 17 May 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I don't remember this story from my youth so it was nice to feel myself 50 (or so) years younger. The book arrived in excellent condition and just in time for me to avoid some tedious 'spring cleaning', so I'm very satisfied

This is the eleventh book in the series of Dan Dare reprints from Titan Books. Dan and his friends have successfully defeated his old nemesis the Mekon, recovered Anastasia, and settled into the boring old routine again. But life is not that simple because two lots of warring aquatic Aliens invade from outer space.

Additional extras include an 'Introduction' by Jeff Wayne, 'The Life and Work of Frank Bellamy' by Paul Holder (Frank Bellamy was my favourite artist out of all those who worked on Eagle), a 'Who's Who in Dan Dare' for those too young to have enjoyed it first time round, and a Dan Dare Christmas story from the Eagle Annual 5 (1956) 'Operation Plum Pudding'. All the books also include a 'Checklist' of all the main Dan Dare stories, when they were published, who they were written by, and which artists were involved.

The Phantom Fleet set was originally published in Eagle from 25/4/1958 (Vol 9, no 17), to 27/12/1958 (Vol 9, no 52). The print quality and colour fidelity is excellent, and my only remaining wish is that the pages could have been as big as the old 1950s Eagle page was. As it is older eyes need glasses to read the smaller lettering and appreciate all the superb detail of the drawing.

This is a definite trip down memory lane for the sixty-year-olds among us, and I was reminded also of many of the surrounding happenings at the time I first read these particular stories. So I found it was a very welcome 2012 Christmas present.
