Widely considered one of the most important sci-fi comic strips ever published, "Jeff Hawke" is a benchmark in intelligent, adult-oriented storytelling! Jeff Hawke's not your average space-hero; focused on reasoning, diplomacy and moral virtues instead of brute force, he is frequently forced to be the ambassador - rather than the saviour - of mankind! His universe is populated with alien species that meet humankind by accident or for commerce, but hardly ever for invasion. Patterson's subtle wit makes the strip's plots and characters as fascinating as they are amusing, and Jordan's highly expressive style fully captures the strangeness of the weird and wonderful aliens of Jeff's universe!
Willie Patterson was a childhood friend of Sydney Jordan who began as a dialogue writer for Jeff Hawke but later took over plots and storylines, leading to what many consider the "golden age" of the strip. Sydney Jordan is an ex-RAF pilot and a graduate of the Aeronautical Technical School, who long sought to exploit his skills in drawing aeroplanes in a sci-fi comic. In 1955 he met Eric Souster and Jim Gilbert, and together they created Jeff Hawke.
