The ‘Eagle’ children’s comic was created here in Southport 70 years ago, with characters including Dan Dare, Captain Pugwash, PC49 and Riders of the Range. With the help of David Britton of the Eagle Society we have created an exhibition to celebrate the anniversary.
Featuring original artwork by numerous contributing artists as well as original memorabilia, the exhibition tells the story of ‘Eagle’ comic from 1950 to the present day.
