Frank Hampson - Trivia

strip office manchester post

Strip cartoonist, born in Manchester, Greater Manchester, NW England, UK. Employed as a Post Office telegraph boy, he contributed his first strip to the Post Office staff magazine in 1937. In 1950 he designed a Christian comic for boys, which eventually became the Eagle, featuring the adventures of ‘Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future’, a painted strip which introduced a unique authenticity through Hampson's use of human models and carefully modelled spaceships.
