Dan Dare concept art

The Dan Dare film that never was. Concept art for a movie adaptation of The Eagle comic strip character which eventually returned as an computer animated cartoon.

I've always loved the concept and the artwork of Dan Dare so I was delighted with the recent movie Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow which blends elements of Dare with Flash Gordon. I did see the computer generated Dare cartoon a little while ago and it's pretty ghastly - for a start the characters look all wrong and it seems a little cheap. When you add that Dan Dare hasn't been on newsagent shelves since, umm, 1983 (or thereabouts) you end up wondering what the point is.
