This particular strip is from Eagle Annual #7 (no date, but I estimate about 1957). It was beautifully drawn and painted by Frank Hampson. You can read more about Hampson and his creation, even see a British Pathé short feature on him, in the link provided under these scans to a 2011 Pappy's post.
More Hampson Dan Dare and the promised video. Just click on the thumbnail.

Ah, but would it be a fifties love story if Mindy had danced off into the sunset and forsaken her one true love?
Drawn by John Forte and Bill Ward, and published in Love Letters #38 (1955).

[SPOILER] I notice a lack of concern for Jim when Susan approaches his unconscious body in the final panel. She is not thinking “Is he dead? Is he badly injured?” No, the first thing out of her mouth is, “At last I can see who Bulletman really is!” Her lack of empathy is as bad as her powers of recognition. [END OF SPOILER]
From Master Comics #12 (1941). The Grand Comics Database guesses the art is by Al Carreno.
