Welcome to Dan-Dare.org

Dan-Dare.org is a huge website with absolutely loads of things to see and do, including a very large collection of Dan Dare images and animated GIFs to view, 10 interactive Dan Dare games and puzzles to play, and more than 500 other free online arcade games to play, most of which include desktop wallpaper pictures related to the games. There is also some extra "fun stuff" to find in this site, including at least one hidden game...

The star of this website, "Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future" is, as his name suggests, a science-fiction character. He was created by the late, great Frank Hampson and first appeared in a self-titled comic-strip series in the first ever issue of the weekly British boys' comic "Eagle" on April 14, 1950. Dan Dare's ongoing adventures were the star attraction of the comic and became hugely popular, with adults as well as with children. In the 1950's and 60's Dan Dare was one of the most well-known fictional characters in Britain, with an unprecedented-for-the-time amount of merchandise produced featuring his likeness.

This enormous popularity was due in the most part to the groundbreaking full-colour animation-style illustrations produced by Frank Hampson and his team of artists, the likes of which had never been seen in a weekly publication in Britain before (or for that matter since). No doubt the entertaining and imaginative storylines, a consistent and meticulously laid out story universe, plus a memorable cast of characters, such as Dan's loyal companion Digby and evil arch-enemy The Mekon, contributed to this popularity too.

Dan Dare's original weekly run came to an end in 1969 when the Eagle comic ceased production, but he has appeared in many different forms since then, most notably in the 2000AD comic in the late 1970's, in a new version of the Eagle comic in the 1980's and 90's, in a computer-animated (CG cartoon) TV series in 2002, and in his own comic-book during 2007 and 2008. Currently, having started in 2003, Dan Dare is appearing in new comic-strips in the excellent thrice-yearly magazine "Spaceship Away", so the legend lives on...

Now that you know who Dan Dare is, take some time to explore the rest of this website to find out more - for example, there are extensive Picture Galleries and Artwork Showcases which contain images of all the different versions of Dan Dare through the years. You might want to use the Dan-Dare.org Site Map to help you navigate around, as there are over 230 pages to view in the main site, plus more than 1000 other arcade game and wallpaper picture pages.

Use the Google Site Search if you want to find something in particular in Dan-Dare.org:




[ Just for fun, you should hopefully see that your mouse-pointer/cursor has been changed to Dan Dare's experimental faster-than-light spaceship "Tempus Frangit" (from the 1960's era of the series) on this page, with The Mekon flying around bombing it!! (Larger images of both are shown below.) You can't shoot back unfortunately, although you can if you play the Dan Dare "Abalis Game" further down this page...

You can turn off The Mekon using the switch function at the very top of this page if you prefer. Once you leave this page, your cursor will return to normal and The Mekon will disappear. The JavaScript and GIFs used to make The Mekon fly around this page can be downloaded for use in your own webspace by clicking on this link: Dan Dare Animated GIFs Page 4. The "Tempus Frangit" cursor, together with other Dan Dare cursors and icons, can be downloaded for use on your Windows system from Dan-Dare.org's "sister" site: Dan-Dare.net. You will also find a complete and illustrated history of Dan Dare at Dan-Dare.net. Additionally, there is a complete listing of the weekly adventures of Dan Dare and The Mekon that appeared in the 1950's and 60's "Eagle", plus details of all the other weekly stories they starred in, at Dan-Dare.org's second "sister" site: DanDare.org.uk. ]
