It's time once more to look at what the galaxy's greatest comic was giving us one month and thirty eight years ago. Taking a look at what a comic was doing one month and thirty eight years ago is such an obvious idea that I'm amazed no one has ever done it before.
In fairness, there seems to be have been little happening in that month that inspires me to make comment. Therefore, I shall skip making comments on each issue and, instead, summarise my thoughts, right here, at the beginning of the post.
I do note that M.A.C.H. 1 is drawn in some of these issues by Jesus Redondo, raising the question in my mind as to whether he's related to Nestor Redondo of DC Comics fame. It would appear, from my in-depth research on the internet, that there's no reason to believe he is, as he's from Spain and Nestor was from the Philippines.
I also note that Dan Dare is having that age-old problem of what to do when confronted by a bunch of people who all look the same but are mostly evil. Obviously, the answer is to shoot them all and worry about it later. I can't imagine why they've never put me in charge of any space missions.
I also note that Dan Dare's shuttlecraft thing has the Eagle Comic logo on it. Putting comic book logos on spaceships is a marvellous conceit that I'd hope to see copied by other spacecraft in future.
