The background theme for this issue is “Operation Saturn” with two Sid Clark models. Another Graham Bleathman cutaway from the forthcoming Haynes Dan Dare Manual (publication date is now June 2013), along with a Don Harley front cover and a Tim Booth back cover based on the story.
Rod Barzilay and Alan Vince pay tribute to Charles Chilton, who sadly passed away in January. We print more of his “Shadow Over Britain!” Journey into Space story.
Andrew Darlington has a close look at the “Dan Dare on Mars” novel and Don Harley has contributed an alternative cover for the book. Jeremy Briggs interviews Charles Norton about his “Serial Thrillers” book which includes Dan Dare and Journey into Space radio serials.
Martin Baines has coloured another Ron Turner short story entitled “No Greater Love”. Tim Booth has added colour to the Garth strip, and we must not forget his own special Dan Dare “Parsecular Tales” saga!
And lastly, Martin Crookall looks at the Rian Hughes / Grant Morrison “Dare”, plus the more recent Virgin one by Garth Ennis / Gary Erskine.
