- Full Description
More 'out of this world' yarns from the heroes (and heroines!) of the spaceways that appeared from Fiction House over a thirteen-year period ending in 1953. They're all here . . . Flint Baker, Reef Ryan, The Space Rangers, Gale Allen, Star Pirate, Auro Lord of Jupiter, Buzz Crandall of the Space Patrol, Mysta of the Moon, the rare super-hero Red Comet, plus many more. This all-time-great sci-fi title was just beginning to hit its stride.
Here is art by Alex Blum, Henry Kiefer, George Tuska, Bob Powell, Arthur Peddy, Nick Cardy, Dick Briefer, Al Bryant, Bob Webb, Don Rico, Al Walker, Zolnerowich, etc.
Features notes by Roy Thomas, and long illustrated feature on the Planet artists by the excellent Michael Gilbert. Plus a special feature on the outstanding artist Al Walker (Norge Benson, Greasemonkey Griffin, Wizard of the Moon). Collecting issues #9-12 from September 1940 to May 1941.
Never before collected. Along with The Phantom Lady, this is the best-selling of all the PS Art Books archive collections. Publisher Fiction House often adapted their pulp magazine titles to comics. Planet, along with Jungle and Wings, was an example of this. The stories here are fun, clearly inspired by their pulp roots, full of two-fisted spaceship pilots, bizarre alien creatures, and even a god-like entity or two. And with the usual Fiction House emphasis on long-legged sexy ladies, whether they are heroines like Gale Allen, or tied up and threatened space ladies.
