About the Author
The workload that Embleton undertook with Wulf was formidable. In comparison to Frank Hampson, who had a studio and assistants to help meet the weekly Dan Dare deadlines, Embleton just had himself to draw, letter and paint the feature. However, Embleton was unfazed by such considerations and within a few months he was also writing the strip and steering it in a much more historically credible direction, as well as adding an extra page to the strip! Just to see one image from the original artwork proves beyond any doubt that Ron Embleton's Wulf the Briton strip was in a league of its own. When his art appeared in late 1950s a succession of truly awesome Wulf covers had eclipsed even the best output of the Hampson studio. Never had artwork of this calibre been seen in a UK comic and for comic creatives such as Frank Bellamy, Don Lawrence, Mike Noble and John Burns, Embleton had yet again raised the bar. Unbelievable that this strip has fallen out of the collective comic consciousness for so long.
