Dan and his crew travel to Venus, hoping to find new resources to feed a starving earth. But the planet is already the lair of the pint-sized megalomaniac The Mekon, who plans to conquer the Earth! Includes background material exclusive to this book, with rare artwork, a new foreword and a previously unseen interview with Dan Dare creator Frank Hampson...

Voyage to Venus - Part 2 continues the adventures of Dan Dare. This collection kicks off with an introduction by Monty Python's Terry Jones. This is followed by a Who's Who in Dan Dare and the first part of a lengthy interview with creator (the late) Frank Hampson.

As with the first collection, this book has all the hallmarks of a quality collector's item. High quality paper and repro, lovely bound hardback with a glossy dust jacket.

While the presentation is first rate, it's the contents that are what's really important. There was something with this collection that seemed a little dated when compared to the previous instalment. It's not that there was anything specific, just a general outdated feel to everything.

This is still a classic collection, and one that is well worth buying. I just enjoyed the first collection a little more than this one.
