The iconic British hero returns for brand-new adventures, written by Peter Milligan with art by Alberto Fouche! featuring cover by superstar artist Christian Ward (ODY-C, Black Bolt)!
For the first time in human history, the Sol System is at peace and Dan Dare, pilot of the future, is bored out of his mind – and praying for something to break the monotony of peace.
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!
