The first issue of Eagle appeared in April 1950; it cost more than its rivals, but half its pages were in full colour, it had interesting, detailed articles on topics like railways and new technology, but best of all, it had Dan Dare - and an eye to the future. This compilation of stories and features from the comic's first decade attempts to recapture some of the excitement of dashing down to the newsagent on Eagle day.
