Eagle Times Enters Its 24th Year Of Publication

Eagle Times, the journal of the Eagle Society, reaches its 24th year of publication with three articles on British artists - from original Eagle, cutaway artist Hubert Redmill and the rather better known Brian Lewis, plus from new Eagle, Dan Dare artist David Pugh.

Eagle's link with 1950s radio are covered with the beginning of a new text story adaptation of PC49's radio adventure The Case of the Crying Clown and the transcription of one of the Radio Luxembourg's Dan Dare episodes sponsored by Horlicks.

In addition to these, and showing that Eagle Times does not cover just Eagle comic, there are articles on the comic strips Gun Law from Express Weekly and Sammy In Space from Swift as well as a heavily illustrated piece entitled Ron Embleton's Lovely Ladies ranging from the demure Maid Marion from Tell Me Why to the rather less demure Wicked Wanda and Candyfloss from Penthouse.

Eagle Times Volume 24 Number 1 is 54 colour and B&W A4 pages. the magazine is published quarterly and the annual subscription for 2011 has been held at the 2010 rate of UK £23 and Overseas £34.

There are more details of Eagle Times and the Eagle Society on the Eagle Times Blog.
