Description: "Planet Comics" was a science fiction comic book title from the Golden Age. Long before Star Wars, there was "Planet Comics," home to a veritable parade of steely-jawed interstellar adventures and a bevy of the most scantily-clad gorgeous damsels in distress you could ever with to find. Planet Comics was the foremost purveyor of good girl art.
More than fifty years since Planet closed up shop, the whole run is available again (73 issues from January 1940 to late 1953). This volume contains issues 1-4 (January 1940 to April 1940) of the original titles from Fiction House.
This first volume collects the first four issues and includes: Flint Baker, Auro Lord of Jupiter, Red Comet, Spurt Hammond, Buzz Crandall and the Space Patrol, Quorak-Space Pirate, Planet Payson, Tiger Hart, Captain Nelson Cole of the Solar Force, Amazona the Mighty Woman, Kenny Carr of the Martians Lancers, Gale Allen of the Women's Space Battalion, and Jim Giant.
