Tomorrow Revisited The Complete Frank Hampson Story (The story of how Frank Hampson created Dan Dare)
Tomorrow Revisited The Complete Frank Hampson Story (The story of how Frank Hampson created Dan Dare)
by Alastair Crompton
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Hark! Is this the patter of tiny criticism?, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oddly, whoever did the typesetting thinks a hyphen (connecting two words) and a dash (separating two phrases) are the same thing, which has made a hash of some sentences.
The picture captions are in too small a font and some are lacking.
Otherwise good value for any Eagle fan, with some exceptionally good reproductions of Hampson's work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid the audiobook version, 17 Dec 2012
This review is from: Bleak Expectations (Hardcover)
As a fan of the superb radio series I expected to find the audiobook no less hilarious but sadly this is not the case. Narrating an audiobook is not a matter of simply reading out loud, it requires considerable acting ability, professional timing and a compelling delivery. While the author, Mark Evans, is undoubtedly the master of comic composition, he is not a gifted narrator, with the result that his own material falls flat. So much so that I had to give up listening after 3 chapters lest it spoil my enjoyment of the radio series. Why oh why was this task not handed to Richard Johnson, the narrator in the radio programme?
I expect the written version is a true laugh-out-loud but I would avoid the audiobook. Alas!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent companion to the Gazetteer, 8 Dec 2011
This book is surely set to be the standard reference on RSC's. A comprehensive coverage of the whole field ('scuse the pun) underpinned by the the exhaustive records of RCAHMS and the canmore database. Be sure to go to the RCAHMS website to download the 306-page companion work "Great Crowns of Stone.pdf", an A-Z gazetteer of all the RSC's mentioned in the book, giving the historical and archaeological records for each along with many photographs and plans (go to [...]

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading cover, 16 Jan 2011
Don't be misled by the cover depiction of the spaceship which is from the "The Man From Nowhere" (reckoned by many to be the finest Dare story of all). "Voyage To Venus" is in fact the very first Dan Dare story, originally published in the earliest issues of Eagle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not suitable for in-use charging, 31 July 2007
The Nokia N95 fits this cradle perfectly but cannot be charged in situ, which somewhat defeats the point of using the cradle. The phone's charge socket is on the bottom left, completely hidden by the bottom left support lug of the cradle so you would have to cut this off (easily done with a hacksaw but then doesn't look so good).
