Classic Dan Dare Safari in Space by Frank Hampson
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Graham Marks, our August 2010 Guest Editor, on comic book classics: "I’ve always loved comics and I remember the first time I was awed by sheer genius was when I came across Frank Hampson’s Dan Dare, and for someone who originally wanted to be an artist, his work was completely inspirational. Later on I found Jack Kirby, an amazingly creative man who wrote and drew some of the best ever Marvel and DC comics (check out his Fourth World Saga*). I learnt so much about the art and craft of storytelling from comics, and owe these two a particular debt."

Synopsis

Classic Dan Dare Safari in Space by Frank Hampson

It's chocks away once again as Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future, returns! First published in classic British comic Eagle, this is perhaps the most seminal adventure of one of Britain's best-loved characters, presented in a gorgeous library edition. When Dan and his crew are abducted from a well-earned holiday, they cannot believe the identity of their abductor - the brilliant, long-missing Scottish scientist Galileo McHoo! But their captor reveals an even more astonishing secret: he knows what happened to Dan's father, and wants to set out to find him using a fantastic, experimental spacecraft! Join Dan and the gang on the amazing search for 'Terra Nova' - and Dan Dare Senior!
