Jon Haward dares to draw the Mekon for new exhibition

Ace artist Jon Haward has been busy drawing Dan Dare and the Mekon for his “Childhood Icons” exhibition at the House Cafe in Saint Benedict Street, Norwich.

Jon was one of the artists on Dan Dare for New Eagle but his comic credits are wide ranging, including the brilliant and very funny Tales of the Buddha, written by Alan Grant, Judge Dredd, Biker Mice from Mars and much more.
