From April 1990: the 'new' New EAGLE!
Another year... another relaunch. And this one is interesting because it took the comic back towards its 1982-83 origins with a greater mix of 'real world' celebs and subjects likely to appeal to the target readership. Definately a move towards a more magazine-centric format... albeit no sign (of course) of the return of the signiature photo-strips from those first 15-odd months.
I think the move reflects how much the comics market was struggling at the time and a recognition that the contents had to have a broader appeal.
Comic strips were - of course - a mainstay... including yet another DAN DARE makeover. And a DD badge (still attached) as a freebie.
Interesting to spot that the badge features that same cover artwork you highlighted as a press favourite from Aug '89.ReplyDelete
