In this fascinating chronicle, author Alastair Crompton tells how artist, writer & visionary, Frank Hampson, created one of the most charismatic and enduring science fiction characters of all time. He is of course, Dan Dare - Pilot Of The Future, the full-colour lead strip, of Eagle comic, the classic UK periodical.

The story is divided into 13 chapters, which includes The Birth Of Space Travel, Crux Of The Matter, Frank Hampson's Studio At Work, Night & Fog, plus The Long Goodbye.

These are illustrated with rare examples of Hampson's art, period photographs, model sheets & the physical models used to bring the concept to creation. If you only get one reference work about Dan Dare and his creator, this has to be it.
