by Phil Wheat

Titan Comics have announced details for their upcoming series, based is one of the best-known (and loved) British comic book characters… Dan Dare: Pilot of the Future

Writer Peter Milligan (Shade, X-Statix, Enigma) and emerging artist Alberto Fouche, bring Britain’s greatest hero back for an all-new series this October 2017 – featuring a stunning cover by Christian Ward (Ody-C, Black Bolt).

Originally created by the Reverend Marcus Morris and visionary illustrator Frank Hampson, Dan Dare thrilled audiences through his lengthy run in the pages of Eagle Comics and 2000AD with its epic, planetary sagas, rip-roaring high-adventure and beautifully illustrated comic-strip art by Hampson and a slew of legendary artists including Frank Bellamy, Don Harley and Keith Watson. Dan Dare Corporation via Curtis Brown Group Ltd, London, licenses the character.

In Titan Comics’ new tale, the Sol System is at peace for the first time in human history and Dan Dare doesn’t know what to do with himself. When an unknown alien vessel of biblical proportions arrives in the solar system and obliterates a moon of Saturn in a show of strength, Dare finds himself thrust back into a new adventure that threatens not just Earth – but all life in the entire universe!

Dan Dare #1 will go on sale in comic stores and digital platforms on October 11th 2017 for $3.99. Fans can pick up three variant covers by top-tier artists working in the industry today including; Christian Ward, series artist Alberto Fouche and a retro variant by legendary artist Chris Weston (2000AD) – which you can check out below, along with a couple of page previews:
