DANGER MAN IN COMICS
current issue of the top UK news magazine for the comics industry, Comics
International (No.202) includes a five page article on the history of Danger
Man comic strips. The well-illustrated feature covers all the British and
American appearances of John Drake in comics and children's annuals, including
items such as unseen character sketches.
Most interestingly, the "dummy cover" of a late 1980's DANGER MAN comic book is shown; a comic which was never published due to a change in editor. (Had it been released, it would have reprinted the 1966 Danger Man comic serials from LION weekly).The next issue of Comics International (which should be out in July)
will spotlight The Prisoner comic strips and spoofs.
International No.202 is only available from comics specialist
stores (such as Forbidden Planet). This issue features four alternative
covers to choose from, one of which highlights Danger Man. The 100 page
magazine costs £2.99 / $4.99. For more images click HERE.
