When Planet began in 1940, it was ground-breaking but also a bit primitive, as were most comic books then. But it got better and better, taking on important new artists and changing up the strips. The great Murphy Anderson begins his tenure here, and EC's Graham Ingels has also come aboard.
Planet Comics remained THE premier sci-fi comic all through the 1940s, translating the traditional pulp-style stories into comic adventures for younger readers as well as soldiers, who delighted in the good-girl art that was the hallmark of this and all the Fiction House titles. Over a thirteen year period ending in 1953, this was THE place for cool science fiction comics.
They're all here ...Flint Baker, Reef Ryan, The Space Rangers, Gale Allen, Star Pirate, Mysta of the Moon, Al Walker's wonderfully drawn humor strip, Norge Benson (see Michael Gilbert's series of articles on Walker in Alter Ego).
Plus many more AND a bevy of the most scantily-clad females you're likely to see outside Sheena and Rulah stories!
