The best of the 1950s Eagle comics in one annual
From Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future, to PC 49, Harris Tweed, Extra Special Agent and Jeff Arnold in Riders of the Range, the Eagle carried numerous strips right from its launch in 1950 through to the eighties.
And now these unforgettable characters will be brought together in the first of two definitive annuals, featuring the strips as well as individual artwork, original advertisements and a present-day narrative.
This Week's Must-Have... With not a whiff of the terrible Eighties retread, this sticks to square-jawed heroes, spaceships, war - and a detective called Harris Tweed.
A stunning compilation from the Eagle comics of the 50s... Far from being a condescending look at a niave age, this spiffing annual may well inspire a new dawn for the comic.
A fascinating social documentation
Holding this book is like holding a mint edition of an original Eagle annual from the 1950s - sheer joy!

STOCKING WINNER 'Beautifully published collection of greatest hits from the classic comic - not just the strips, but readers' letters, car cross-sections, sports pages and adverts ******'
The newly published Eagle Annual should keep those children of the 50s quiet for hours this Christmas... this facinating book tells the story of hom the comic was born as well as taking readers on a trip down memory lane.
Christmas really can come early. Sometimes, it can seem like several have come all along at once - and that's the feeling that many chaps of a certain age will get with even a sideways glance at the cover of this marvellous book
