Dan Dare, pilot of the future and star of the Eagle, has been called out of retirement. Seven issue series from Virgin Comics.
Dan Dare Issues 01 – Under an English Heaven：
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 in 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 ambushes the destroyer. As the crew struggles to stay alive, they realize with horror that the hostiles have brought a weapon of unimaginable power.
Dan Dare, pilot of the future, has been called out of retirement!
Dan Dare Issues 02 – If You Were at Waterloo：
In the years since his retirement, Dan Dare, newly reinstated in the Royal Navy, doesn’t seem to have missed a beat. Called upon to engage a hostile force bearing down on Earth, Dare is still a master of his craft, despite traveling on a battered ship commanded by a green captain toward a battle of impossible odds. A man of principle to the last, Dare forces his ship to answer a distress call on a mining colony. Several people have disappeared, and are suspected dead. But what starts off as a string of murders will turn out to be something much worse-and much more gruesome-than anyone expected.
Dan Dare Issues 03 – The Whites of Their Eyes：
As a brutal threat bears down upon the mining colony of Port Napier, Dan Dare whips the local detachment into a modest-but effective-defensive force. Together with the colonists who were unable to escape, they abandon the settlement to make a final stand in what will most assuredly be a battle of attrition. Meanwhile, back on Earth, the increasingly suspicious Peabody follows a hunch-and what she finds out may have finished the battle for Earth before its even begun!
Dan Dare Issues 04 – The Fighting Temeraire：
It’s the last stand on Port Napier as Dan Dare and the colonists find themselves nearly overrun by the onslaught of Torr, vicious killing beasts. Trying to hold them off until they can be rescued, what they don’t know is that the entire royal navy has been thrown into disarray by the disappearance of the Prime Minister back on Earth. As Peabody attempts to piece together the puzzle-and the government-Dan and Digby brace themselves for total annihilation, hoping for a miracle.
Dan Dare Issues 05 – The Lights of a Perverted Science：
Without time to recover from the staggering losses from the showdown at Port Napier, Dan Dare reassumes his position as the head of the fleet, and attempts to deal with the larger problem: the Mekon, and the black hole that he’s brought along with him. As Dare learns of the range of the Mekon’s treachery, he begins to realize that there’s only one thing he can offer to sate the Mekon’s depraved aims…
Dan Dare Issues 06 – A Little Touch of Harry in the Night：
The adventure continues as the fate of the human race is at stake in an epic showdown between the Mekon’s massive fleet-complete with black hole in tow-and the smaller but nevertheless formidable Royal Navy, led by Dan Dare.
Dan Dare Issues 07 – The Price of Admiralty：
SPECIAL DOUBLE-SIZED FINALE ISSUE! It’s the final showdown between the Mekon’s massive Treen fleet and the British Navy’s own trusty ships. Will the Mekon’s desire to enslave the human race and destroy Dan Dare finally be realized… or will determination in the face of grim circumstances win out over the blind obedience and sheer numbers of the Mekon’s force? Don’t miss this heart-stopping conclusion to this gripping story!
