Groundbreaking comics writer Garth Ennis brings the classic Dan
Dare back to life in a bold, new series Dan Dare was once a
hero. He brokered peace with alien races, pushed the frontiers
of space, and saved the planet from total annihilation...
repeatedly. But now, his Space Fleet has disbanded, the United
Nations has crumbled, his friends scattered to the solar winds.
Britain is once again the world power, but Dare, disillusioned
and disappointed in his once-precious home country, has quietly
retired. But there's troubling mustering in Deep Space. The
H.M.S Achilles is picking up strange signals when, suddenly, an
enormous fleet of hostile ships ambushes the destroyer. As the
crew struggles to stay alive, they realize with horror that the
hostiles have brought a weapon of unimaginable power. Dan Dare,
pilot of the future, has been called out of retirement Virgin
Comics is compiling the first three issues of the landmark Dan
Dare, written by Garth Ennis, into a Special Hardcover Edition.
