The Second Eagle Dummy


In Spring 2008 Dominic Book Auctions in Cirencester offered for sale ten volumes (1950-60) of Eagle and Girl of unknown provenance, which were bought by London’s Cartoon Museum.

Unknown to the Museum (or the auctioneer) the lot also contained a copy of the second Eagle dummy, prepared to show Hulton Press the Eagle idea wasn’t just a ‘one-off’. In July 2008, the museum provided The Lost Characters of Frank Hampson with scans of the dummy. The Frank Hampson pages are discussed on that site, but the complete comic is shown here.
