Hardcover with dust jacket, colour, 96 pages, 9 in. by 12 in. Published in November 2009; the twelfth volume in the Classic "Dan Dare - Pilot of the Future" series, published by Titan Books in the UK. This volume contains two stories, "Safari in Space," and the sequel, "Terra Nova," both of which which were originally published in colour on the front and second pages of EAGLE, the British weekly illustrated paper for boys, in 1959. In this volume from Titan Books, there is a page break after the conclusion of "Safari in Space" which allows the reader to look at each front page and second page of "Terra Nova" together. Both stories were written primarily by 'Dan Dare' creator Frank Hampson, and drawn by Hampson and his team of artists. The art and colour work in "Safari in Space" and the first part of "Terra Nova" are among the finest in the ten-year history of the original 'Dan Dare' feature. The last page that Frank Hampson drew for 'Dan Dare' is the first page of the episode of "Terra Nova" in Eagle Volume 10 Number 27; there is no publication date, as there was a printers' strike during July-August 1959. Perhaps as a farewell, the iconic characters that Hampson had created a decade earlier are not depicted in his final page of 'Dan Dare' artwork. Hampson moved on to illustrate a new feature that would later appear on the back page of EAGLE, "The Road of Courage" the Life of Christ, written by soon-to-be ex-editor Marcus Morris (and now published in "Classic Bible Stories" from Titan Books, available from Amazon.co.uk) Artwork for the 'Dan Dare' feature was carried on by Don Harley and other former assistants for Hampson, with the new addition of Frank Bellamy, who was moved to 'Dan Dare' in mid-assignment, after completing just eight episodes of the artwork for "The Travels of Marco Polo" appearing on the back page of EAGLE. Bellamy's artwork also appears in the next two 'Dan Dare' stories, "Trip to Trouble" and "Project Nimbus."
