Onsale this week way back in 1984: EAGLE.
I thought it would be fun to take a little more time and look at all the strips that appeared in the copy of EAGLE that went on sale on this date way back in 1984.
For copyright reasons I've only included the first page (or pages in the case of Dan Dare) of each story... just enough to bring the memories flooding back. I hope.
The Happy Families done-in-one-pager is a little grim... and a little unusual. It's the sort of thing you probably wouldn't get in a kids comic today without a flurry of compaints from parents, a social media storm and someone turning-up in the paper complaining of "traumatized' kids and demanding some compo from the publisher. It seems better suited to SCREAM!, which was still just about in business at this point.
