Telegraph Sunday Magazine No. 49, 21st August 1977

This article, though interesting, does not warrant being in this list. Due to it historically being included, I have left it here to assist researchers.

The content is three and a half pages in colour written at the launch of Marcus Morris' 'Best of Eagle' book. It contains a colour photo of:

"The men behind the comic: from left to right, Frank Hampson, the original illustrator, Clifford Makins, who succeeded Morris as editor, John Pearce who launched the first promotion, Macdonald Hastings, Eagle Special Investigator, and Marcus Morris, the clergyman who conceived and created it, pore over early issues of Eagle.[...]" (p.18). 

Unfortunately there are indeed five gents, but Hampson is second from the left

They are, according to an Eagle Times article ("Memories of Eagle" by Graham Page, Eagle Times, Vol 30:3, Autumn 2017, pp12-14):

  1. Clifford Makins reading Vol4:9 (12 June) Eagle comic
  2. Frank Hampson reading Vol4:9 [sic] (5 June) Eagle comic
  3. John Pearce
  4. Macdonald Hastings reading Vol4:13 (3 July) Eagle comic
  5. Marcus Morris reading Vol4:12 (26 June) Eagle comic
