Yaroslav Horak (Harbin, 1927) is an ethnic Czech-Russian, then London-based, now Australian-based illustrator and comics artist, best known for his work on the newspaper comic strip, James Bond.

He was the second artist for the Daily Express strip James Bond from 1966 to 1977, then for the Sunday Express and the Daily Star from 1977 to 1979 and again from 1983 to 1984. In total Horak worked on 33 James Bond comic strips after taking over from John McLusky. Horak also created the comic series Jet Fury and The Mask, in addition to working on other comic strips such as Andrea, Mike Steele, and Captain Fortune, Cop Shop and Sergeant Pat of the Radio Patrol.

Horak is my favourite James Bond illustrator. Great style and use of ink.
