Description

Jet Powers is packed with wonderful 1950s space adventure, with two superlative stories by Williamson and everything else, almost cover to cover, by the great Bob Powell. Capt. Video and Tom Corbett were hot on TV, so Magazine Enterprises (ME) gave heroic space fantasy their best foot forward in this cool title. Plus the one-shot Space Ace, all of which is drawn by Fred Guardineer, stalwart DC creator and master of the nuts and bolts sci-fi style made popular by Basil Wolverton and his feature Spacehawk. Great stuff!!

Dick Ayers did the cover on Space Ace, but inside it’s all Fred Guardineer. Fred is a particularly under-rated Golden Age artist. He was doing covers and major features on the earliest DC Comics, including the non-Superman Action Comics covers before issue #20. His clunky style is not unlike Basil Wolverton’s. And he was very well suited to space ships, ray guns and two-fisted heroes, as you will see in the four stories he draws in this one-shot, Magazine Enterprises’ Space Ace.

Bob Powell was a go-to artist in the Golden Age. He had his own studio, and pumped out some of the finest work on series like The Shadow, Man in Black, Cave Girl, and dozens of stories of war, romance and horror for Harvey Comics. He ended his tenure at Marvel in the sixties, but then passed away far too young.
