Format: Hardcover
Remarkably good quality product to a very high standard. I have other volumes in this series from this publisher and will continue to purchase any more they produce. Contains most interesting information about the original artists and authors in addition to the actual stories them selves.
First rate products.

The Frank Bellamy years
5-stars
This volume features two main stories, Trip to Trouble (Eagle volume 10 #41 - V.11 #11, c.46pp) and Project Nimbus (V.11 #12 - #28, c.34pp) plus two 8-page 'backup' stories, taken, I assume from Annuals - Space Race and Operation Moss. Space Race is unsigned, but Operation Moss is signed by Frank Hampson and Don Harley, the two main stories are signed by Frank Bellamy - Britain's greatest comic book artist (though Frank Hampson and Don Lawrence both have their supporters for the title).

According to the checklist at the back of the book, these two stories are the only 'solo' ones by Frank Bellamy, though he did work on 'Terra Nova' in the previous volume. This volume is pure Bellamy, though not quite the Bellamy of TV21 and Garth, as the production crew do their best to keep the look of the characters consistent with Frank Hampson's style, but fortunately they don't succeed very often. The spaceships and general design is pure Bellamy though. In the previous volume, you could see the Bellamy style slowly emerging through the Hampson template, but here he has broken through completely.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By R. F. Stevens HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 26 Dec. 2013
Format: Hardcover
This is the thirteenth book in the series of Dan Dare reprints from Titan Books. Dan and his friends have finally managed to reach the planet Terra Nova in search of his father. But life is not that simple because his father moved on once landed and Dan follows his trail through the story `Trip to Trouble'. After this he is briefly back on Earth before rocketing off to trouble shoot the `Project Nimbus' ships and is confronted by hostile aliens.

Additional extras include an overview of 'Dan Dare's Solar System' by Jeremy Briggs, a 'Who's Who in Dan Dare' for those too young to have enjoyed it first time round, and two Dan Dare stories from the Eagle Annuals; 'Space Race' (no 7, 1958), and `Operation Moss' (no 8, 1959). 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 Trip to Trouble set was originally published in Eagle from 28/11/1959 (Vol 10, no 41), to 12/03/1960 (Vol 11, no 11). The Project Nimbus set was originally published in Eagle from 19/03/1960 (Vol 11, no 12), to 09/07/1960 (Vol 11, no 28). Frank Bellamy is the lead artist setting the style, with help from Don Harley on alternate weeks. 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 2013 Christmas present.

Being a huge comic book fan, I decided to order Trip to Trouble as a tribute to my collection and am extremely pleased with the product.
The artwork is brilliant and the book is a very fair price.
I would definitely recommend this product to any Dan Dare fan!
