Blog@Newsarama � Ennis to write Dan Dare series for Virgin Comics: "Virgin Comics is bringing Dan Dare: Pilot of the Future out of retirement to star in a new line of comics and a big-screen adaptation. Variety reports that the classic British science fiction character is a favorite of Virgin's Richard Branson, who spearheaded the effort to acquire publishing, film, television and video game rights to the Frank Hampson creation. The new comic, which debuts in November, will be written by Garth Ennis. "Dan Dare is the quintessential British hero," Ennis tells the trade paper. "He's our Captain America, our Superman, our Batman; he's all of them rolled into one.""
