Dan Dare club newsletter #1

From Autumn 1964 I present the very first issue of the Dan Dare club newsletter. It was produced by Eric MacKenzie (aged 15) and Andrew Skilleter (aged 16). Printed on foolscap paper - 2 pages only. Eric had had letter published in Eagle on 13/06/64 and 07/11/64 concerning his interest in Dan Dare and the newsletter.
While not the earliest comics fanzine produced this country I would say it is the earliest fanzine about a particular character.
My question is did Andrew Skilleter produce the illustrations on page 2? Let's hope he reads this and can let us know.

  1. So how did you end up picking this up and have you told David Hathaway-Price that you have it?
