On this day, 26 February 1983: Eagle
Leaping out of the page, your super, soaraway Eagle went 3D for its 49th issue. This cover, featuring Cam Kennedy’s Scorpio, also carried a free pair of cardboard 3D specs.
It all seems a bit eye-watering now but you can’t fault Eagle for innovating. After the heavy photo-strip content of its first year of publication, the 3D initiative suited its forward-looking, ‘Comic of the 80s’ branding.
