Also, the other one you’ve been waiting for. Garth Ennis (The Boys, Preacher, John Woo’s Seven Brothers) will be making his first U.S. public appearance in many years to discuss the brilliance of Dan Dare’s enduring legacy and why he needed to write this quintessential British story for readers in the U.S. In Garth’s own words, “He’s our Captain America, our Superman, our Batman, he’s all of them rolled into one. He’s the original and the best.” Joining Garth is Peter Hampson, whose father, Frank, created Dan Dare in 1950 and Larry Lieberman, Chief Marketing Officer of Virgin Comics.
