Dan Dare

  • British science fiction action hero Dan Dare was created by artist Frank Hampson and his editor the Reverend Marcus Morris.
  • Dan Dare first appeared in the Eagle comic story "Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future" from 1950 to 1967 (and subsequently in reprints); and was dramatised seven times a week on Radio Luxembourg between 1951–1956.
  • Described as "Biggles in Space", the original incarnation was seen by some as the British equivalent of Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon.
  • Dan Dare returned in new incarnations to suit new generations: in the 1970s in the British weekly, 2000AD; in the 1980s in the relaunched Eagle comic; in the 2000s as an animated series; and as a film project in the works in 2016.
  • Creators who have worked on the character include writers Frank Hampson, Chad Varah, Allan Stranks, Pat Mills (founder of 2000AD), Tom Tully and Garth Ennis.
  • Artists who have drawn Dan down the years include Frank Hampson, Don Harley, Bruce Cornwell, Frank Bellamy, Keith Watson, Ian Kennedy, Keith Page, Jon Warad and Gary Erskine.
  • New comic strips featuring the original Dan Dare continue to be published in the magazine Spaceship Away.
