Product Description

"* "Intriguing storylines and terrific art." - DownTheTubes.net"

About the Author

Willie Patterson was a childhood friend of Sydney Jordan who began as a dialogue writer for Jeff Hawke but later took over plots and storylines, leading to what many consider the "golden age" of the strip. Sydney Jordan is an ex-RAF pilot and a graduate of the Aeronautical Technical School, who long sought to exploit his skills in drawing aeroplanes in a sci-fi comic. In 1955 he met Eric Souster and Jim Gilbert, and together they created Jeff Hawke.

Format: Hardcover
It's a book! It's a hoot! It has pages!

Created for a newspaper, so it's a collection of black and white line-drawn stories broken up into the standard three pane cartoon strip format, one strip appearing in the newspaper each day. Despite that, the story flows ok. Proves the writers knew what they were doing.

Rather witty, not badly drawn, and better than most newspaper strips of the time. Not as well drawn as the Dan Dare / Eagle content, but more intelligent and more interesting to read. I loved Frank Hampton's work when I was younger, now I find it a bit lightweight. Not so with Jeff Hawke.

Check out King of Thieves from the same publisher, if you get the chance.

The work of Sydney Jordan and Willie Patterson cannot be described easily. It's early sci-fi but that doesn't matter really as it's about aliens and alien experiences and humans...um it's human stories involving humans and their quirks.....errr. it's aliens interacting with humans in such a human way you wonder which is the alien. Just READ IT! the stories are beautifully illustrated and the dialogue is so funny...and this is from a daily newspaper!!! Incredible

I used to follow the strip cartoon in my dad's Daily Express. I thought that my memories of it were perhaps over-inflated by nostalgia. Not so. I read The Ambassadors with genuine admiration for how good it was. Why don't we get stuff this good written now?
