Invaluable guide to the universe of Dan Dare!,
This review is from: Dan Dare: Spacefleet Operations Manual (Owner's Workshop Manual) (Haynes Owners' Workshop Manuals) (Hardcover)
This book, a "must-have" for fans of British science fiction, is a thing of beauty. Faithfully compiled and expanded on by Rod Barzilay from the comic strip chronicles of the Eagle's own "pilot of the future", the Spacefleet Operations Manual gives the reader an invaluable breakdown of the personalities, history and - most importantly - the hardware of Dare's world. Lavishly illustrated, the book combines full colour art from the original comics with masterful technical cutaways, executed with consummate skill and attention to detail by Graham Bleathman. This book is a terrific companion to the strips, and a great introduction to Dan Dare for new readers.
