Dan Dare, by Harold Johns

Harold Johns studied at art school along with 'Dan Dare' creator Frank Hampson. He joined Frank Hampson's studios later on, where he worked on the 'Dan Dare' series. Johns worked closely with Greta Tomlinson, the two of them illustrating many of Dan's early adventures, including practically the entire artwork for 'Marooned on Mercury'. He left the studio in 1953 and continued his work as an illustrator.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
