We are pleased to report that Eagle has inspired a new fan website set up by Ian and Sharon Hartas. While most Eagle sites are devoted to Dan Dare this one is specifically for the Eagle annuals both from the original Eagle run between 1952 and 1975 and the new Eagle run between 1983 and 1992. In that time it had mutated from the familiar red covered, green spined 1950s style Eagle Annual into The New Eagle Yearbook and the price had increased ten fold from 8/6 (which equates to 42.5p) to £4.25.
Each annual has a clear cover picture plus publishing details and a contents listing which sets the site apart from the majority of annual sites which are normally photographically based. In addition to the main set of annuals the site also dips its toe into the tie-in Eagle Sports Annuals and Eagle Books plus the annuals of the companion titles Girl, Swift and Robin.
While the site is by no means complete on the tie-in and companion annuals the site owners are promising more updates to come.
The Eagle Annuals website can be found at http://www.eagleannual.info/.
