A mysterious flotilla of unmanned probes have been causing chaos on and around the Earth. When one of these 'Black Cats' is tracked back to Saturn, it results in the boldest space mission Dan Dare has ever made. But what dark secrets does Saturn hold - and what nefarious plan does scientist and fellow passenger Blasco have in store for the crew?...

Operation Saturn - Part 2 follows on from the events that unfolded in Part 1. There are no surprises here. The script and art work are up to the usual standard, and everyone's favourite "pilot of the future" is up to his usual heroics.

Anyone who has yet to read a Dan Dare story may wish to start elsewhere as, while it's not difficult to get up to speed with what is going on, this isn't the best place to start.

This collection also includes "How Dan Dare Got There" feature; Frank Hampson sketch book; and a "Who's Who in Dan Dare" breakdown.

For fans who grew up on the Eagle, this is an invaluable volume that you need to add to your collection.
