Posted on November 11, 2010


Here’s Dan Dare Deluxe Collector’s Edition Volume 9 – TERRA NOVA TRILOGY. This is the rather Scarce ninth (9th) Volume in the High Quality series of twelve Large Format Full Colour Hardbacks Dan Dare Deluxe Collector’s Edition – FIRST EDITION 1994 published by Hawk Books.

This Volume features 3 stories:
1)      SAFARI IN SPACE – illustrated by Frank Hampson assisted by Harold Johns, Greta Tomlinson & Keith Watson;
2)      TERRA NOVA – illustrated by Frank Hampson & Frank Bellamy assisted by Keith Watson & Don Harley;
3)      TRIP TO TROUBLE – illustrated by Frank Bellamy assisted by Keith Watson & Don Harley.

The stories originally appeared in the EAGLE magazines from 3 January 1959 (Vol. 10 No.1) through to 12 March 1960 (Vol. 11 No. 11).

Plus a special bonus! An 8 page Dan Dare Adventure:

Operation Plum-Pudding

reprinted from Eagle Annual number 5.

This volume was unfortunately the last volume Frank Hampson contributed to. The reason for his departure is explained in an article in this volume: Dan Dare – a period of transition. Frank Hampson, the creator of Dan Dare, was no doubt one of the finest artists British Comic History has known. His successor was equally a Giant in the British Comic Art World: the inimitable Frank Bellamy. This makes this volume so outstanding compared with the other magnificent ones: two of the greatest Masters of Illustrations in one Volume, two different interpretations but both equally brilliant.
