    I should note that the spirit of Eagle Flies Again lives (at least thats how I interpreted it) on over at the Down the Tubes website. I checked it out, and I have to recommend Down the Tubes as a great site to find more information on UK comics. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed reading nearly all of this, but ultimately if I had to ask myself Would I buy the next issue had it not been cancelled?, and the answer would be no. As I mentioned above, I think Id rather buy a couple more comics instead. In this day and age, there are so many fansites and newsites devoted to comics that all news and information tends to be just the click of a mouse away. How much chance did a fanzine priced at 3.50 ($6.75) have? Another thing that in my opinion holds (held) this back is the focus on old comics and playing up the nostalgia feeling older readers might get reading these articles, and maybe this isnt the best way to bring in the modern readership. But this isnt meant to be a snub to the guys who put out this issue. The focus on British comics makes it stand out and contains stuff Id never heard of.

    Ostensibly a fanzine devoted to Eagle, the original home of scifi icon Dan Dare, Flies Again actually has a wider focus, this issue covering the likes of 80s horror title Scream, 2000AD and Judge Dredd. Theres a good variety of articles and opinions on show here, although the emphasis is on nostalgia rather than news, and to be perfectly honest, that doesnt interest me nearly as much as knowing whats new and interesting in the world of British comics. Production values are high, and the articles here are well written and evocative, but they just dont grab my attention in the way that the pieces in something like Redeye do. Perhaps its because I grew up with Transformers and Spider-Man rather than Scream and Eagle, or perhaps Im just not turned on by nostalgia, but this undeniably well-produced title just does nothing for me. If youre of the target audience though, you might find your nostalgic cockles well-warmed here. Read Full Review
