Early fifties science-fiction comics can seem light years from contemporary tastes, but Jet Powers, from cult favorite Bob Powell remains as entertaining and eye-catching as ever! This deluxe hardcover collects the complete adventures of Jet Powers, known as "The Captain of Science," as he battles his diabolical adversary Mr. Sinn with the best 1950s-era technology at his disposal.
Includes all of the Powell-created stories from very difficult to find original sources Jet Powers #1-4 and The American Air Forces. With an introduction by Steve Rude (Nexus) and an essay by Eisner-winning author James Vance (Kings in Disguise) and Fangoria columnist John Wooley.
This is the second Dark Horse collection of Bob Powell material and shows the artist at his peak. He began in the comic book trenches of the Golden Age, working on Sheena for Eisner and Iger, moving on to create his own strips for Harvey, reviving the moribund Shadow with brilliant covers and stories, and creating his own shop to produce wonderful strips like Cave Girl (also collected by Dark Horse). This is one of his very best series from the early 1950s.
Very well printed on warm, non-coated paper that best recaptures the original color and quality of the comics themselves.
