I can’t see me rushing out to get a Dan Dare collection (though know many who would) but I’m really hoping this paves the way for the phone book collected edition of issues 1-10 of 2000AD I’ve been after for years. Pretty sure Dare was the only strip causing legal headaches with regards this.
Cheers to Luke Foster for the heads up
