I like the look of the card game. Is there a good reprint of the original Dan Dare comics?

Titan are currently reprinting the original Eagle Dan Dare strips. There are 12 volumes in print so far -- which cover the Frank Hampson years -- and number 13 is due at the end of the year. You can find links to the various titles over on the right: scroll down a little to the "comics bibliography" section and you'll find a heading "Dan Dare" which will take you to a gallery page showing all the covers.
