Dan Dare

I thought I'd add this image I did a little while ago of Dan Dare, the seminal British post war sction hero who appeared in the Eagle, finally settling his score with arch nemesis, The Mekon.

I love doing this kind of action retro sci-fi stuff. So much fun to come up with ideas.

The Mekon's suit was inspired by some of Frank Quitely's stuff and a little kinda Greek / Roman dictator look.

The ray gun was based on a 1950's toy.

Below is Frank Hampson's original. Brilliant!
