Explore Hampson Frank, Dare Eagle and more!

The Mekon (of Mekonta) is the arch-enemy of the British comic book hero Dan Dare, first appearing in 1950 in the Eagle comic strip Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future.

Don Harley’s touching tribute to Frank Hampson, featuring Dan Dare and the Mekon, from 2013’s splendid Dan Dare Space Fleet Operations Manual.

Dare Dare by Frank Hampson. Definitely an influence on Space Captain Smith. Hampson himself was an amazingly talented guy. I don't think any other version has got near the original.
