DAN DARE by Chris Samnee


I'm sorry to say that I'm not terribly familiar with Dan Dare... After poking around on the internet a bit to prepare for this week's sketch I'm really looking forward to checking out some of his adventures.

Pencils for this sketch can be seen over on my blog here.

Swell pick, Mr. McDaid.
