Description

Packed with crazy space adventurers and even evil gods: Flint Baker, Reef Ryan, Auro Lord of Jupiter, Mars God of War, Reef Ryan, Crash Parker — as well as valiant ladies, fighting feminists Gale Allen and the Girl Squadron, who trash wicked dwarfs on a far flung planet. Drawn by stalwarts such as Dan Zolnerowich, Joe Doolin, Rafael Astarita, Saul Rosen, Al Walker, George Appel, Art Saaf, and Rudy Palais.

As I’ve said before, the earliest issues of Planet were pretty funky, both in regards to art and stories. But by this time, things were looking up and the comic looked far different. Influences from artists like Lou Fine and Will Eisner were showing up here, and the art is getting better and better. The stories, well, they are still space pot-boilers, but they’re a bit more nuanced and improving also. Astarita is a stand-out here, as is Rudy Palais. Al Walker I have gone on and on about before, his Norge Benson strips are often the best drawn…and most eccentric, in the best Will Eisner/The Spirit tradition…in an issue.

Note: The volume numbers of softcover editions do NOT correspond with the contents of the hardcovers. These collect three 64-page issues; the hardcovers typically collected four 64-page issues, or as many as six 52-page or less issues later in the run.
