Cover Gallery: SPACE ACTION

Here's the complete cover collection for Ace's Space Action...
Art by Lou Cameron
...which share something in common with the covers for Lost Worlds and Fantastic Worlds  besides being science fiction-themed (We showed those covers HERE)!
Art by Matt Fox and/or Lou Cameron
The answer?
None of the covers relate to any of the stories inside the books!
(But they're kool, eh?)
...which uses the cover art from Space Action #2 that they adapted into a huge print on the wall of the Nerdist TV show set!

Reading Room: EXPLORERS IN THE UNKNOWN "Prisoners of the 'Jelly' Planet" Conclusion


...since the comic presented the background so well, I'll just sit back and enjoy the conclusion along with you...
Though Chief Rollan was now part of the crew, he didn't appear again!
(Not that "again" was very long, since next issue would be the strip's final appearance!)
The Hunter I crew had adventures set in the near-future of the late 1990s-early 2000s, much like then-current films like Green Slime, Wild Wild Planet, and Battle in Outer Space.
This never-reprinted tale from VttBotS #14 (1968) was written by Dick Wood (who wrote the entire series) and illustrated by Nevio Zaccara (who remained the strip's artist until the final chapter).

Reading Room: EXPLORERS IN THE UNKNOWN "Prisoners of the 'Jelly' Planet" Chapter II

OK, since the comic itself synopsised the plot, let's just continue...
It's nice to see a situation where we out-gun aliens.
Usually, aliens have superior weaponry/tech and we have to be sneaky to triumph over them...
You'll see the conclusion tomorrow, unlike the original readers of this story in 1968 who had to wait three months for the next four-page chapter (VttBotS was a quarterly book)!
The Hunter I crew had adventures set in the near-future of the late 1990s-early 2000s, much like then-current films like Green Slime, Wild Wild Planet, and Battle in Outer Space.
This never-reprinted tale from VttBotS #13 (1968) was written by Dick Wood (who wrote the entire series) and illustrated by Nevio Zaccara (who remained the strip's artist until the final chapter).

Reading Room: EXPLORERS IN THE UNKNOWN "Prisoners of the 'Jelly' Planet"

These are the voyages of the Hunter I, it's ongoing mission...
...to fill four pages per issue of Gold Key's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
You'll see the continuation tomorrow, unlike the original readers of this story in 1968 who had to wait three months for the next four-page chapter (VttBotS was a quarterly book)!
The Hunter I crew had adventures set in the near-future of the late 1990s-early 2000s, much like then-current films like Green Slime, Wild Wild Planet, and Battle in Outer Space.
With only four pages per issue, there was little character development (or even names) for the crew, but lots of action!
This tale from VttBotS #12 (1968) was written by Dick Wood (who wrote the entire series) and illustrated by Nevio Zaccara (who remained the strip's artist until the final chapter).

Reading Room: SPACE ACTION "Invaders from a Lost Galaxy"

A "Lost Galaxy"?
Not The "Lost Galaxy"?
How many "Lost Galaxies" are out there?
And, is it really lost, or just misplaced? ;-)
While the writer is unknown, the art for this Flash Gordon-inspired tale from Ace's Space Action #1 (1952) breaks down as pencils by Lou Cameron, inks by Rocco Mastroserio!

Before texting and blogs, there were Love Letters & Love Diaries!

Until the intro of texting, blogs, MySpace and FaceBook, the main way people kept track of their love lives was thru Love Letters & Love Diaries!
In fact, they made up one of the most popular sub-categories of romance comics, with literally dozens of titillating titles!

Let our selection of the best of these these kitchy, campy (and very kool) classic comics covers help you express your true feelings on the Most Important of Days--Valentines Day on greeting cards, teddy bears, mugs, and even "naughty" undies!

And, if they can't assist your love-life, perhaps something from one of our other sections at True Love Comics Tales™ including...
(or is that Love in School?)
will help get your point across on the Most Important of Days!
But order quickly, V-Day is only TEN days away!
