Grab a mug of Horlicks and fasten that space helmet. John Freeman’s Down The Tubes comics news blog has a long lost episode of Radio Luxembourg’s The Adventures of Dan Dare. The eponymous Pilot of the Future from the pages of Eagle had his own radio serial on the commercial broadcaster from 1951 to 1956, though few episodes have survived.

Former Marvel UK editor Freeman has an exclusive feature on the 1953 episode that stars Noel Johnson as Dan Dare.
