RIP Jimmy Hansen

Sorry to read on Lew Stringer's Blimey! blog that Jimmy Hansen has died. Jimmy drew Skateboard Squad and later Speed Squad as well as a number of the Cheeky's Week elements in Cheeky Weekly, plus a one-off Disaster Des strip when he stood in for Des' regular artist Mike Lacey. Jimmy's work always had a lot of energy, particularly suited to the Squad strips, featuring comically-exaggerated facial expressions and bodily movements which contributed to the lively feel.

  1. Been nice to reread the Jimmy Hansen posts....Skateboard squad is a good action strip...
    I wished he signed his work so often get him mixed up with Mike Lacey But my eye is more in these days..

    1. Yes, for many years I mistook Jimmy's work as being by Mike.

  2. The Mike Lacey/Jimmy Hansen crisis you've blogged about … wasn’t one. Jimmy’s work was distinctly livelier than Mike's superb penmanship. Simply observe Jimmy’s work on the Buster & Monster Fun Holiday Special covers. I know you’ve shut up about this for over a year now; just saying ;-) RIP Jimmy.

    1. It was a crisis for me at the time, but now I think I can differentiate between Mike and Jimmy.
