Chorion Reps Dan Dare License

Dan Dare, the space-faring hero of classic English comic strips, is back in the game, with the Dan Dare Corp. choosing Chorion to represent the international licensing rights to the characters.

Created by Frank Hampson and first appearing in The Eagle in April 1950, Dan Dare became an icon to English comics readers of the 1950s and 1960s.

Already signed to new deals are Simon Spicer for greeting cards and wrap; Somerbond for apparel; Day 2 Day Trading for figurines, and Russimco, who will be launching a master toy range in early 2010.

‘The Dan Dare artwork is simply breathtaking, with vivid colours and precise detail and we are excited to be reviving this much loved property, bringing new products to the market for both old and new fans alike.’ said Nicholas Durbridge, Chairman, Copyrights, a Chorion company.
