JEFF BEVAN

COMMANDO COVER TITLES

 (POCKET HOMEPAGE) 

Created: February 10th 2006

Updated: May 19th 2016     

Jeff Bevan was a staff artist with D.C. Thomson & Co Ltd.

As a student, Jeff worked on the River Tay sand boats which were used to carry

dredged waste out to deeper water for dumping.

As an artist, Jeff carried out commissions for European and American navies.

Therefore, his love for nautical subjects is apparent in some of his Commando covers.

His first cover being #734 ‘BORN TO BE BRAVE’ April 1973.

And his last original cover being #2938 ‘STRIKE FAST – STRIKE HARD’ late March 1996.

There was a period between August 1975 – May 1981 when there were no Bevan covers.

All the covers since 1996 have been reprints.

 

Sadly Jeff died in 1992.
