Jeff Hawke

Often regarded as one of the most important science fiction comics ever released. 


! Trivia:

In the strip H1760, published 21 November 1959, it is possible to see a stone that commemorates the first human landing on the Moon, noting that it happened on 4 August 1969.

Thus, Sydney Jordan and William Patterson forecast the real date of this event with an error of only two weeks, ten years before Neil Armstrong made the first descent to the Moon surface on July 21!


The greatest space adventurer and fighter of interstellar wars is JEFF HAWKE, the James Bond of the galaxies.

The cartoon spaceman has won many awards for his creator Sydney Jordan. Fantasy is Jordan's great asset as a draughtsman and writer. He moves you a million miles in a twink and his space perspectives are masterly.

Sydney Jordan was born in Dundee, Scotland. By the age of ten he was drawing 'science fiction' pictures of a kind; building model airplanes to satisfy a passion for World War I aircraft, looking at the stars through an old naval telescope. Thus was sown the seeds of his career.

The artist was trained as an aeronautical engineer. Aircraft and space seem to provide the widest possible scenario for the strip hero he had in mind.

The strip JEFF HAWKE first appeared in the Daily Express on 15th February 1954.

A typical Jordan thought:

"The history of man is the story of 800 ghosts, standing at my back. Only 800 ancestors ago, I was a hominoid, just emerging from the ape. And 650 ancestors ago, I was still living in a cave."

"Yet think - today man's footprint is on the moon. On this time-scale Jeff Hawke's journeys to the stars are not fantasy. They are the events of tomorrow."
