ComicScene #13 update: order your print copy now

70 years ago, on 14 April 1950, the first issue of Eagle sold an amazing 900,000 copies.‬ It was a colourful escape for everyone after the war and during rationing.

On 14 April 2020, ComicScene will be celebrating 70 years of Eagle and Dan Dare in digital form and by post as close to that date as possible, depending on what is happening with the post at that time. If you want a print copy please order at the ComicScene store by 31st March.

Anyone ordering the regular 80-page digital or print copy will receive an enhanced digital issue with an extra 30 pages of content. ComicScene 13 has articles on the original Eagle and Dan Dare, Dan Dare in 2000AD, '80s Eagle, Dan Dare by Grant Morrison and Rian Hughes from Revolver, Dare in Virgin, Titan Comics and B7 audio adventures and a look at the work of Frank Hampson. There are also strips including Rok of the Reds, Whackoman!, the final episodes of Flintlock and Captain Cosmic and a free 16 page 'Spaceship Away' supplement with three strips in the style of 50's Dan Dare.

ComicScene #13 print edition will be available by post only. Tony Foster says this is due to advice that many specialist magazines are leaving their current issue—in the case of ComicScene that's issue 12mdash;on newsstands for an extended series. This means that #12 will be on sale until at least 21 May, and may well remain on sale until July, depending on the situation at the time.
"We are ready to go to print with Issue 13, (our second birthday issue celebrating 70 Years of Comics, Eagle and Dare) and will do so to meet subscribers, library/school/special offer packs and those comic fans wanting a copy of this very special celebratory issue.  Support the magazine and make your order online by 31st March and you will receive your magazine in April as expected by post."
    "Let Dan Dare help battle the Virus from Venus and celebrate comics together on the 14th April 2020!
    "‪Please order your copy by 31 March for print/digital issue so we can get in post to you (our enhanced digital issue can be ordered up to and beyond the date!). Only £5.99 in print and digital (£2 added for postal copies)."
You can get the magazine in print or digital at or get one of our special offer packs at
