Spaceship Away On the Approach Run

Spaceship Away Issue 11 - CoverIssue 11 of the original Eagle-inspired title Spaceship Away is now at the printers and should be available in 10 days time.

This latest issue of the critically acclaimed magazine is another 44 page issue, featuring all the regular strips and items, plus two more Frank Hampson Studio development sketches and a Graham Bleathman centrespread – “Battle for Mekonta”.

But the really big news is what is coming in Spaceship Away #12. That issue will have the first new Dan Dare artwork from Bruce Cornwell in 45 years, and also the start of a three part, brand new, Denis Steeper-scribed Dan Dare story – “Murder on Mars”, which will mean the title will then be running four Dan Dare stories at once!

More strips will join the title in 2007, which really makes it a must-read magazine for anyone who enjoys science fiction comics. “2007 looks like an exciting year all round,” says publisher Rod Barzilay, and he’ll get no argument here.
