A Celebration of the Life and Art of Frank Hampson - Tomorrow Revisited. This is a very comprehensive biography of Frank Hampson by Alistair Crompton. It is full of examples of Hampson's artwork. But, 'Eagle' and Hampson really deserve a television documentary. My cousin Sue gave me five bound volumes of 'Eagle' when I was 5. What a marvellous gift! 'Eagle' was a child of Southport, Lancashire. Frank Hampson was a local artist and Sci-fi enthusiast, and endowed Eagle's flagship two-page colour adventure with a strong Lancashire element. Hooray! - And why not?)

Frank Hampson (21 December 1918 – 8 July 1985) was a British illustrator, best known as the creator and artist of Dan Dare and other characters in the boys' comic, the Eagle, to which he contributed from 1950 to 1961.

Frank Hampson (21 December 1918 – 8 July 1985) was a British illustrator, best known as the creator and artist of Dan Dare and other characters in the boys' comic, the Eagle, to which he contributed from 1950 to 1961. He wrote and drew Dan Dare's Venus and Red Moon stories, plus a complete storyline for Operation Saturn. However, Hampson drew only part of the Saturn story and his script was altered when he passed the strip to assistants.

A Celebration of the Life and Times of Frank Hampson. Published by PS Art Books, December 2010. ISBN: 978 1 84863 121 2. 214 pages. Working ridiculous hours for comparatively little money, Tomorrow Revisited shows that the artist’s life was clearly never easy, even when artists like Hampson, at the top of their profession, received the accolades he deserved. The book highlights some of the complications of publishing also. Although Hampson drew and created Dan Dare, contracts signed to his publisher meant that Dare was owned by the publisher.

However, Crompton also celebrates the good years of Hampson’s life–sharing wonderful stories and even more wonderful artwork from those years. Even better, the writer prints a whole slew of rare and seldom-seen artwork–including a set of lost characters that Hampson created shortly before Mirror fired him. What emerges from this wonderful book is a real celebration of the life and work of a man who had a thoroughly complicated life. Frank Hampson’s life is sad, but it’s compelling. He flew high and then was forced to crash to the ground
