Support Red Nose Day… the Mekon Commands It!

The illustrious leader of the Treens commands your support of Red Nose Day… via this cheeky cartoon from Commando, Dan Dare and Charlotte Corday artist Keith Page!

You can donate right here, even if the Mekon, Dan Dare’s arch nemesis, probably won’t!

It’s been a long time since Red Nose Day published a comic. Perhaps they should do one next time around?

Busy as ever, Keith tells us he’s just completed another Ramsey’s Raiders for Commando and is still working on a project about comedian Tony Hancock with writer Stephen Walsh.

“The graphic novel is up to 90 pages now and we’ve only reached 1944,” he tells us. Sounds great!
