The story behind the name... Who Dares Publishing was originally set up by Andrew Skilleter to produce a range of high quality print based merchandise including poster prints, calendars (for 1986, 1987, 1988 and 1989) and bookmarks.
The name Who Dares was inspired by bringing together his connection with Doctor Who and his affection and knowledge about the classic British space comic strip hero, Dan Dare.
Andrew's affection for Dan Dare started when he was just a boy. Along with friends he founded 'the Dan Dare Club'. The first Dan Dare Club Newsletter was published in Autumn 1964, produced by Eric MacKenzie (aged 15) and Andrew Skilleter (aged 16). It was Matthew Doe who in 2016 had the inspired idea of bringing together their skill sets and relaunching Andrew’s legendary 1980s publishing company.
