QUICKIE GUEST POST BY BARRY PEARL - SPACE ADVENTURES #10 STRIP...

Space was not the 'final frontier' for someone too young to remember the Korean War. The 1950s comics were. Until PS Publishing and Gwandanaland started reproducing 1950s comics, with the exception of EC, I never got to see many of them. In fact it was easier to find reproductions of the 1940s comics than the 1950s. While many of the stories are not great, and repetitive, it is wonderful to finally see many of my favorite artists starting out.
There was a huge amount of Sci-Fi and space adventure comics in the 1950s. Here is Space Adventures #10 from 1954. It lists its publisher through issue #8 as Capital, and then it changes to Charlton. Steve Ditko did the art.
