Space: 1999 by David & Dan Day

September 6, 2023|In General

David and Dan Day are Canadian artists with a number of comic book credits between them, plus they’ve continued to work as artists outside of comics. They’re the younger brothers of the late Gene Day, who made a solid start in the business, particularly with Marvel Comics, before he passed away at a young age.

David pencilled this piece for Sword in Stone Productions in 1986, and brother Dan inked it.

We haven’t had Space: 1999 comics since the Charlton run, and I thought this would make a good cover. And since the show was a British production, perhaps Titan Comics will consider reviving the book.

Colour and packaging by me.
