Dan Dare - Volume 2!

5 April 2017

A second volume of adventures for classic British Sci-Fi hero Dan Dare is out today...

After the praise and love for B7Media's production of Dan Dare - Volume 1 in December ("...a slick, streamlined trilogy of stories that takes one of the all-time greats, puts him in a newly kitted out and streamlined world and lets him and his colleagues soar", Sci-Fi Bulletin) we're delighted to announce that Dan Dare - Volume 2 is now available on Download and CD, containing three further adventures starring Ed Stoppard, Geoff McGivern, Heida Reed and Raad Rawi:

Episode 4 - Reign of the Robots by Simon Guerrier

Dan Dare and his crew finally return to Earth. Landing in central London, they find the city deserted - or that's how it seems at first. But soon Dare faces an army of ruthless machines, robots who have conquered the planet and placed the surviving humans in slave camps. The robots are too powerful and too numerous to be resisted, and their invasion is complete. With limited resources, Dare, Digby and Peabody face their greatest challenge yet - to liberate planet Earth. But the task becomes more desperate than ever when Dan discovers the alien force behind the robot invasion...

Episode 5 - Operation Saturn by Patrick Chapman

As work begins to rebuild planet Earth after the devastation of the robot invasion, Dare and his friends in Space Fleet remain vigilant, certain that it is only a matter of time before the Mekon launches a fresh attack. When the wreck of the Nautilus - an experimental ship lost over a decade before - appears in orbit of the moon, Dare, Digby and Peabody are sent to investigate. They find the ship and its crew were destroyed by advanced alien weapons. All clues lead them to Saturn’s moons. With Earth still vulnerable our heroes must journey to an unknown world - to discover who sent the Nautilus back, not realising that for once the source of their latest conflict comes from a lot closer to home. Not all would-be conquerors of planet Earth are alien...

Episode 6 - Prisoners of Space by Colin Brake

After a sequence of near non-stop adventures Dare, Digby and Peabody find themselves in a strange limbo of paranoid calm. Whilst there’s been no sign of the Mekon anywhere in the solar system, Dare is certain Earth hasn’t seen the last of the evil alien. Mysterious spaceship disappearances near Venus, an Academy student accidentally launching a prototype new spacecraft, and a floating prison cell in space... reveal themselves as all part of the Mekon’s latest plan to defeat his arch-enemy Dan Dare once and for all. The first season of Dan Dare concludes with daring space action, fearless heroics and the revelation of devastating secrets concerning Space Fleet...

Dan Dare - Volume 2 is available on Download for £20 or CD for £25: these pre-release prices will be frozen until the set is on general release at the end of May when they go up to £25 and £30 respectively. For the curious who've yet to Dare to experience Dan at large, we've a free download of the first chapter of this set's Operation Saturn story, while the first chapter of Volume 1's Voyage to Venus is similarly available.
