Dan Dare

Blue aliens, colonising other planets for resources to keep an exhausted Earth going, scientific observation led by a woman…. No, not Avatar, but Dan Dare, the classic Sci-Fi comic strip of the 1950s Eagle comic. Dan Dare is a glorious mix of post-War British society and an amazing futuristic vision.  I’d love to write a book on it, looking at things like the egalitarian world that it sets up (or not), Jocelyn Peabody, the role of the UN and world politics, science and environment, etc etc.  If you want to publish the book, get in touch!
