A gripping start to the second box set finds Dare, Digby, and Peabody having completed their teleportation to find themselves 10 years in the future where The Mekon has enslaved the human race with the help of an indestructible army of robots. Dan Dare will fight back but will his friends join him or submit to the rule of the Mekon.

This is a powerful story. The Mekon's subjugation of Earth illustrates what an evil and dangerous threat he really is to the human race. At the same time, we are kept guessing what Digby and Peabody going to do. Are they really betraying the human race or just trying to play the Mekon? Peabody, in particular, shows some real growth as a character as compared to earlier adventures.

The one character who really couldn't pull off trying to play traitor if he tried is Dan Dare, bless him. He portrays raw indomitable courage that's awesome and inspiring. Filled with great action and some good plot twists, this is just a heck of a way to start a box set.
