Desperate Dan is a wild west character in the British comic The Dandy. He first appeared in the comic in issue 1, dated 4 December 1937. He is apparently the world's strongest man, able to lift a cow with one hand. Even his beard is so tough he has to shave with a blowtorch. The strip was drawn by Dudley D. Watkins until his death in 1969. Although The Dandy Annuals featured new strips from other artists from then on, the comic continued reprinting Watkins strips until 1983, when Ken H. Harrison took over.  
Ken Harrison who is the "Desparate Dan" cartoonist lives on Fleetgate, Barton-upon-Humber.
