- Full Description
If you never read another Connie, this is the one not to miss. This is the famous sci-fi sequence, where Connie and her friends blast off into space and find alien races and, more surprisingly, other earth people on Venus and the moons of Saturn. Godwin's beautiful line drawings (he later did the same beautiful work on Rusty Riley, after a long career in the slick magazines and advertising art), and his depiction of 1930s-era sci-fi, make this a must-have classic.Two book set with four stories: Captives of the Space Pirates, Master of the Jovian Moons, Battle for Titan and Predators of Polaria.
Frank Godwin's Connie, produced in the 1930s for the Ledger Syndicate, was groundbreaking in many ways. Its heroine, Connie Kurridge, was a woman of action and adventure who roamed the Earth and explored space. And she was smart and quick-witted in a fix. Godwin's magnificent art drew from the pulp magazine sci-fi design of the day, creating futuristic machinery and fantastic creatures with equal ease.
These were published in 2009, actually before the set of two books we call set one, but chronologically these are set AFTER set one. The publisher began with these, to test the market, since these are the most desired of the Connie newspaper strip adventures. We've put together these sets and offer them exclusively at half-price.
Note: On page 50 and 51 in the story Predators of Polaria, the strips are reversed, but none are missing.
