I’m very sorry to hear of the passing of the artist JAMES HANSEN (often known as Jimmy Hansen) who died on Tuesday 19th June 2018.
In a career spanning more than 40 years, Jimmy Hansen drew thousands of pages for British comics, working on strips such as The Bumpkin Billionaires, Ricky Rainbow, P5, a stint on Dennis the Menace, and Buster amongst others. He was the cover artist on Buster for the last several years of the comic, bringing a great sense of energy and fun to the strip, as he did with all his pages.
Some of his early work was The Winners…Crybaby Jackpot… the Skateboard squad Cheeky comic
He said his first comic work was for whizzer and chips Hot Rod the dragon…must of been for a summer special… my guess he started mid 70’s at Fleetway..
Apparently he was only in his late 60s. Gone far too soon.
