Eagle was a seminal British children’s British comics periodical, first published from 1950 to 1969, and then in a relaunched format from 1982 to 1994. It was founded by Marcus Morris, an Anglican vicar from Lancashire. Morris edited a Southport parish magazine called The Anvil, but felt that the church was not communicating its message effectively. Simultaneously disillusioned with contemporary children’s literature, he and Anvil artist Frank Hampson created a dummy comic based on Christian values. Morris solicited the idea to several Fleet Street publishers, with little success, until Hulton Press took it on.

Following a huge publicity campaign, the first issue of Eagle was released in April 1950. Revolutionary in its presentation and content, it was enormously successful; the first issue sold about 900,000 copies. Featured in colour on the front cover was the its most recognisable story, Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future, created by Hampson with meticulous attention to detail. Other popular stories included Riders of the Range and P.C. 49. Eagle also contained news and sport sections, and educational cutaway diagrams of sophisticated machinery. A members club was created, and a range of related merchandise was licensed for sale.

Amidst a takeover of the periodical’s publisher and a series of acrimonious disputes, Morris left in 1959; Hampson followed shortly thereafter. Although Eagle continued in various forms, a perceived lowering of editorial standards preceded plummeting sales, and it was eventually subsumed by its rival, Lion, in 1969. Eagle was relaunched in 1982 and ran for over 500 issues before being dropped by its publisher in 1994.

    Great site 🙂

    Just to let you know that the only downloads that appear to be working are the first two, the rest download empty RAR files.

    Thanks

      That is weird, i tried a few and they all had the issues mentioned inside the rar. Maybe there were problems on the site at the time you tried it. I had several problems with Mega and Mediafire also sometimes, but when i tried it again there was no problem anymore.

    Thanks for that, I’ve tried it on my mobile and on my laptop with the same results. The first couple of links are working fine (the updates at the top of the downloads) but the rest just download empty RARs of about 5kb each. I found a similar thing with the new Eagles too.

    By the way if you’re missing any of the issues from Volume 1,2 and 3 I have them complete and also have quite a few Vulcans you haven’t got here if you want copies 🙂

      Thanks for the offer, the issues on this blog are all the issues i have, so if there is something missing i miss them also, just like the Vulcans. So if you let me know how to get these issues i will be happy to get them and place them here also. If you let me know which downloads you want and are not working for you i will make new links for them coming week.

    Hi, just tried again on my laptop and they’re now working, at least the ones I’ve tried so far but thanks for the offer. I’ll let you know if I run into any problems.

    With regards the Vulcans no problem just let me know the best way to get them to you. I actually have some paper copies that aren’t included in the digital ones I have, including some of the rare Scottish editions. I’ve been meaning to sell them because I’m thinning out my collection due to lack of storage space but must check and see what I don’t have digitally and scan them first I think!

    At the moment you have v1 14,17,30 on here. I have the following digital copies in addition to those:

    1977 Annual
    Holiday special
    Vulcan Index
    V1 – 3, 5, 8, 11, 28
    V2 – 1 to 25 and 27,28

      It’s probably siterelated, i have problems with uploading sometimes also. If you like you can opload the issues to a sharingsite of your choice and give me the downloadlinks. Email will be to difficult because of the large files.

  4. Packages with numbers 281-290 , 571-580 and 631-640 contain those numbers but the repetition of the previous packet each. I pray you review these bad packets , please. A greeting from Bill Hispanic Comics ( Spain ) where we put your blog among those recommended .

      Strange, i just download a few and they all are good. I know most of them are really large files and take some time to load in my comicreader. Perhaps a hickup with downloading.
