The best of the 1960s EAGLE comics in one annual.

From Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future, to PC 49, Harris Tweed, Extra Special Agent and Jeff Arnold in Riders of the Range, The Eagle carried numerous strips right from its launch in 1950 through to the sixties. The fourpence-halfpenny weekly also featured plenty of sports coverage and the famous 'cutaway' diagrams of battle ships, steam trains, light aircraft, etc. Taking over the publishing licence from Egmont and Titan, we now have the opportunity to step up the current vogue for 'retro-futurism': rather than simply re-run straight facsimiles of the comics, the Eagle Annuals of the 1950s and 60s will be drawn from the vast Eagle archive and feature the strips as well as individual drawings/artwork, original advertisements and a present-day narrative. The idea is to create a superior object of desire for boys, lads and dads everywhere.

“A jolly beezer outing”

As a chap in my early fifties, this book is an aide memoire to times when things were a lot better. There are really great cartoons like Harris Tweed, Super Sleuth and XYZ Cars, reports on all manner of sport,... More
