Cover of Spaceship Away Issue 17

Do you think we will ever see any new Frank Bellamy Thunderbirds stories? No of course not. However there is a glimmer of hope.

Spaceship Away which is now on issue 17 contains full colour original new Dan Dare (DD) stories in the style of the original comic presented with the Eagle logo.

This did not come around easily as the first issue was twelve years in the making! The current issue no 17 has 44 A4 pages in full colour, some of which will be of interest to the Anderson fans.
