Frank Bellamy, The Influence.

Frank Bellamy (21 May 1917 – 5 July 1976) was a British comics artist, best known for his work on the Eagle comic, for which he illustrated Heros the Spartan, Fraser of Africa and Dan Dare.

His work was innovative in its graphic effects, sophisticated use of colour and the dynamic manner in which it broke out of the then-traditional grid system.
