Amazon Editorial Review
Dan Dare has been an icon since 1950. Elaborate stories of his space travel and galactic battles defending people of the universe captivated post-War baby boomers. Dan Dare's adventures burst to the forefront of pop culture, selling nearly 1 million copies each week in the pages of the Eagle Comic. And now he's back!
Dan Dare was once a hero. He brokered peace with alien races, pushed the frontiers of space, and saved the planet from total annihilation... repeatedly. But now, his Space Fleet has disbanded, the United Nations has crumbled, his friends scattered to the solar winds. Britain is once again the world power, but Dare, disillusioned and disappointed by his once-precious home country, has quietly retired. But there's trouble mustering in Deep Space. The H.M.S. Achilles is picking up strange signals when, suddenly, an enormous fleet of hostile ships ambush the destroyer. Now, as the crew struggles to stay alive, they realize with horror that the hostiles have brought a weapon of unimaginable power. Dan Dare, the pilot of the future, has been called out of retirement.
This Dynamite edition will feature the entire Garth Ennis-scribed Dan Dare series along with a complete cover gallery.
Dan Dare is one of those classic British space opera comics that I had heard of but not had a chance to experience. I received this in a comic book bento box and enjoyed it quite a bit. It is not something that will stay in my graphic novel collection. I enjoyed Garth Ennis's writing for this comic's story as I usually enjoy his work.
