Dan Dare and the Mekon return to Southport


As readers of the Mayoral blog will know I have been spending some time at The Atkinson recently. On my way out this afternoon I passed through an exhibition I had not noticed before and part of it featured the adventures of Dan Dare. As readers of a certain vintage will know the Eagle comic was a remarkably successful publication. The stories , in the main, were written by a Birkdale Clergy man the Vicar of St James's Marcus Morris and the artwork was produced by a lecturer at the Southport Art College Frank Hampson.

They have some excellent exhibits including some of the original artwork. If you are an Eagel fan it is well work a visit.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
