Dan Dare The 2000 AD Years Vol. 01

Dan Dare, Pilot of the Futureids a British icon. He was created by Frank Hampson in 1950, and first appeared in the Eaglecomic where he was an instant hit with the British public. Almost a decade after the original series had ended, Dan Darewas resurrected in the pages of a brand new sci-fi comic for boys - 2000 AD!

Waking from suspended animation after two hundred years, Dan Dare faced an unfamiliar universe, filled with terrible new threats, but also included all too familiar ones…such as his old nemesis The Mekon!

Collected up for the first time, the first volume of this punk-fuelled space opera features the superb writing of Pat Mills (Nemesis the Warlock), Steve Moore (Doctor Who) and Gerry Finley-Day (Rogue Trooper) with art by Massimo Belardinelli (Slaine) and Dave Gibbons (Watchmen).

Pat Mills is the creator and first editor of 2000AD. For the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, he is the writer and co-creator of ABC Warriors, Finn, Flesh, Nemesis the Warlock and Slaine. He also developed Judge Dredd and helped write one of the early Dredd serials, The Cursed Earth.
