KID'S KLASSIC KOMIC KOVERS - EAGLE #1...



Created by Reverend MARCUS MORRIS and FRANK
HAMPSON as an antidote to American 'horror' comics, EAGLE
first flapped its wings in April 1950.  The comic's most popular strip
was undoubtedly DAN DARE, drawn by Hampson and his team of
assistants.  Eagle lasted to 1969, nine issues short of its 1000th ish,
and was then merged into LION, ironically a comic that had
originally been created to compete with it.
