5.0 out of 5 stars Eagle: a cut above the rest, 9 Jan. 2009
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Eagle Annual of the Cutaways (Hardcover)
If you remember the Eagle in the Fifties and Sixties this will be a pleasant memory jogger. 176 pages of cutaways, which, after I read Dan Dare was my favourite part of the comic. Maybe the cutaways were the ultimate marketing idea to separate the Eagle from the competition and set parents minds at rest that they were buying more than a weekly comic for their sons.

I thinks it worth say that the book will give you a feel or flavour of the cutaways. Don't expect be able to read every word because the images have been reduced in size. As I recall the originals were not always the easiest to read because of the huge amount of information in the captions, not helped either by being in big blocks of solid type. If you want to see better reproductions search out The Eagle book Cutaways (ISBN 978-0863502859) published by Webb & Bower in 1988 and be prepared to pay over the odds, too.

The publishers of this latest edition of cutaways have taken the trouble to give the impression of an aged book. The cover looks used and throughout the pages have been printed with sepia edges. It all adds up to a bit of warm nostalgia, nicely done, too.
