To be published in early 2010, to coincide with the sixtieth anniversary of the launch of Eagle for boys, comes this brilliant new book, Tomorrow Revisited, which tells the story of how Frank Hampson created Dan Dare, the shocking truth about why he left Eagle, and his career in later life.
BUT THIS IS MORE THAN A PLAIN BIOGRAPHY.
The book is crammed with superb examples of Hampson’s best work, printed in full colour from original art boards, so you can see all the amazing detail and painstaking backgrounds Hampson was so good at creating. When he had completed ‘The Road of Courage’, Hampson went on to create seven other strip cartoon characters, intended for Eagle. Now these amazing strips are printed for the first time, together with backgrounds of how they were drawn and some of the intended story-lines.
TOMORROW REVISITED also contains sketches from Hampson’s notebooks, and some of the many hundreds of photos he took to help him create the strip.
