The new proprietors of Eagle wanted to remodel eagle and save money. As part of this effort, Dan Dare was relegated to two pages inside, and now in black and white. Keith Watson was asked to draw the strip, as a result of his work on Captain Condor in the Lion. Apparently, the new management were unaware that he had worked on the strip before!
The black and white stories were not reprinted by Hawk Books, and, unless you have the originals, they will be new to you. The artwork may have been good, but the story line was fairly dire.
This colour frame was put on the front page, which was now being used to advertise the different stories inside.
