Good news for fans of the ace Dan Dare magazine Spaceship Away – the title has had its license renewed so expect even more great issues of this labour of love from Rod Barzilay.
Issue 13 of the A4 sized full colour glossy magazine published three times a year is now on sale via spaceshipaway.org.uk.
As well as featuring all-new adventures of the original Dan Dare, Spaceship Away also features that other classic British science fiction story, Journey into Space (reprinting strips originally featured in Express Weekly comic). Hal Starr, created by Jeff Hawke creator Sydney Jordan, is another mainstay of the magazine, previously unpublished in English – or the UK, for that matter.
Spaceship Away costs £6.99 per issue for UK residents and £10.00 per issue for international subscribers. The difference is due to postal costs.
