IfYouDropATarantulaItWillShatter: True.

It’s true.

In other news, Dan Dare, pilot of the future is back, and seriously kicks ass. Yep, the square jawed Mekon-bashing Brit is back thanks to Virgin Comics and some serious Dan Dare love from Richard Branson himself. And. It’s. Brilliant.

I read the comic last night with a grin from ear to ear. It’s terrific to see an icon from my childhood, just this once, brought right up to date and treated with the reverence, respect and love they deserve. As opposed to, say, the p**sing all over them and turning them American like they did with the Dennis the Menace movie.

Anyway, back to Dan. What’s not to love about an image like this:


It almost makes me proud to be British again.
