Description

This one’s got it all: painted cover art by pulp legends Allen Anderson and Norman Saunders, EC’s Bernie Krigstein (principal artist in all four “Space” issues), and “The True Story of Flying Saucers” written by Harry Harrison, who went on to win Hugo awards as one of the big names in Science Fiction. Murphy Anderson does a story here, and Everett Raymond Kinstler and George Tuska also contribute! Publisher Ziff-Davis didn’t last long in comics, but they did first class work, as good as any comics of the period.

It’s been widely accepted that Ziff-Davis came into comics with a serious budget and an eye to success. They hired the best artists and writers, including Superman’s own Jerry Siegel and veteran pulp cover painter, Norman Saunders. And Allen Anderson was no slouch either, having created dozens of striking covers for the pulps, among them Planet Stories covers still much admired today.

Here they turned loose the innovative Bernie Krigstein, just before he would move to EC and create some of the most experimental and highly praised stories ever done in comics. He did most of the interior artwork on both issues of Space Patrol and also both issues of Space Busters!
