WELCOME

Welcome to the web home of THE EAGLE SOCIETY.

THE EAGLE SOCIETY is dedicated to the memory of EAGLE - Britain's National Picture Strip Weekly - the leading Boy's magazine of the 1950s and 1960s. We publish a 56 page, A4, quarterly journal - the Eagle Times.

This weblog has been created to provide an additional, more immediate, forum for news and commentary about the society and EAGLE-related issues. Want to know more? See First Post and Eagle - How it began.

Will,
I just wanted to congratulate and thank you officially for creating the Eagle Times website. You've done a fantastic job and I wanted you to know that having had to keep a website up-to-date myself in the past, I know what it takes.
Well done!
Best wishes
David Britton

David,
Thanks for your support and kind words. Doing it this way (as a blog) makes it a bit easier, though!

I'd like to echo David's comments.
And say thanks for the link to my own site 'The Lost Characters of FH' I check here virtually every other day, and oftten there's a nugget I learn.
You've got a winner.
