Artist info:

Desmond Eric Walduck was a Islington-born freelance artist who joined the 'Dan Dare' team in the early 1950s. His major task was finishing the artwork of other artists, most notably Frank Hampson. He also worked on some episodes himself, such as the end of 'Operation Saturn' in 1954 and the complete episode 'Prisoners of Space' in 1955-56. Other comic stories by Walduck are 'Sammy in Space' with Bruce Cornwell for Swift, 'Red Devil Dean' for Express Weekly in 1955-56 and 'Slaves of War Orphan Farm' for Tammy in 1971. He was also a book illustrator, and passed away in Hammersmith, London, in late 1995.
