'Tayside legacy of cult sci-fi strip' Graeme Strachan @thecourieruk 15Jun19 #JeffHawke #WilliePatterson

In today's Courier:

An Email sent this morning: 

"Dear Graeme 

Thank you for writing such a true representation of the story, in the comic strip and told by me. ....

Your article makes me want to go and read more of Jeff Hawke, the mention of the National Portrait Gallery in London, the alien estate agent and the Englishman on the moon in a Mini Cooper! ... 

Well done for bringing the sci-fi stories more alive and to the Courier readership.  Much appreciated.

Regards, Chrys"

I donated copies of the 2008 republications of Jeff Hawke stories by Titan Books to both Fife and Dundee Libraries, the latter copies went into the Local History department, and I will be donating books also to Perth Library:
