Well, I did say that there'd be more Christmas images soon, Criv-ite chums, so - having shown the first Christmas EAGLE several days back, I thought it would be nice to show the second Festive edition from 1951 - and here it is. The cover just reeks of Yuletide atmosphere, doesn't it? As revealed here on a previous post, Eagle's DAN DARE was not the first hero of that name to grace a comic - no, that honour belonged to a private detective in WHIZ COMICS #2 (which introduced the original CAPTAIN MARVEL) in 1939/'40. However, he's long-forgotten, while our Daniel continues to be fondly remembered to this present day.
Like I said last time, more Christmas images soon - keep an eye out for them.
