A brief hiatus in our voyage into the past brings us to the present day to refuel, where the first Christmas issue of Danger Mouse is currently available. This 36 page, full colour mag includes an all-new eight page Danger Mouse adventure written by Alex Collier, a page of mini-strips, and loads of fun features and activity pages.
I rate Danger Mouse as the best licensed comic around in the UK at the moment, and I've never really watched the TV series. I like the fact that the stories are originated and not adaptations of TV episodes, and Alex Collier is a funny writer so he's the right man for the job. The features are written in good humour too, so it's a livelier mag than most TV tie-in titles.
This festive issue comes bagged with several gifts. I know there's an element of cynicism amongst older collectors these days that this is just "bagged tat" but these gifts are of a better quality than most.
A bit steep at £4.99 but all in all it's a good value package. On sale now!
