Design of the Week--The SpaceMan with the Ray Gun!

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another!
This week...it's the most interesting visual on the set of the new BBC-TV series The Nerdist.
Like it's counterpart on the wall of Sheldon & Leonard's apartment in The Big Bang Theory (Click HERE for that art), it's based on a classic cover from the Golden Age.
This image is from Ace Comics' Space Action #2, published in 1952, almost 60 years ago!
And here's the really weird thing...it has nothing to do with any of the stories in the comic!
Yes, it's the old "this scene on the cover does not occur on the inside" trick!
As to who the artist is, there's speculation it's either Lou Cameron or Matt Fox, both of whom had considerable sci-fi experience.
