The latest issue of Jeff Hawke’s Cosmos, Vol 4 Number 2, is now available. Bill Rudling’s 72 page A4 fanzine continues to provide full length reprinted Jeff Hawke stories from the Daily Express newspaper.
The cover comes from The Helping Hand a story from 1964/65 concerning motor racing, a theme which runs through the issue with Hawke creator Sydney Jordan’s article on artist and driver Nick Faure. However the Hawke strip’s normal association with alien planets and spacecraft are not forgotten with On The Run from 1973, while then modern aircraft are the subject of Wildcat from 1966.
Hawke’s Notes, written by Duncan Lunan, continue to detail the minutiae of the stories in a DVD commentary style, and the issue is rounded off with Andrew Darlington’s article on Captain “Space” Kingley, a series of annuals from the early 1950s painted by RW Jobson.
