Tell Your Loved One "Giddiyap, Sweetie!" on Valentines Day!

Valentine's Day is almost upon us, and nothing says "I Love You" like gunpowder, horse blankets, and guys who don't bathe for days, right?
Someone thought so back in the 1950s, when two of the most popular genres--romances and Westerns were combined into Western romances (or Romantic Westerns) in both prose fiction and comics.
True Love Comics Tales™ has digitally-restored and remastered the best of the comic cover art from that all-too-brief shining period of American literature for a new line of Valentine's Day goodies including greeting cards, diaries, teddy bears, even shirts, tops, and, well...bottoms for men and women at Western Love™
Just the thing for the cowboy or cowgirl in your life!

RAUMPATROUILLE "Kampf um die Sonne" (Battle for the Sun)

We've seen sci-fi tropes like evil aliens, psycho robots, and wandering planets, we confront two topics once considerered sci-fi, but are now part of daily life in the 21st century: global warming (bad) and feminism/women's rights (good), but told from a 1960s perspective!
Note: We've tried to embed the English subtitles, but if they don't come up automatically, go to the "gear" icon on the lower right, and set them manually.)
More 1960s sci-fi next Monday!

Reading Room JOURNEY INTO UNKNOWN WORLDS "Lost ... One World"

James Blane is in for a rough day...
...or is it a rough year...or decade...or...
"A chance to do your life over, with no memory of what you've done previously.
Would you repeat your mistakes, or take a different path...into the Twilight Zone?"
(Sorry, couldn't resist)
 This odd tale of time and turnover was the lead (but not the cover feature) in Atlas' Journey into Unknown Worlds #53 (1957).
However, these scans are from Marvel's Worlds Unknown #4 (1974), which had better reproduction.
Art by Bob Powell, but the writer is unknown.
BTW, The Grand Comics Database lists a totally-different Atlas "Lost ... One World", which predates this story, as being reprinted in that issue of Worlds Unknown!
That tale, which has never been reprinted, will appear next week!

Reading Room: Space Voyagers "Delta Brain"

...well, I guess that pretty well covers it.
Let's continue...
I don't think good 'ol James T Kirk could've handled that situation any better!
Scripted by Robert Kanigher, illustrated by Alex Nino, this never-reprinted tale from DC's Rima the Jungle Girl #2 (1974) showcases both the writer's and artist's storytelling strengths, demonstrating you can tell an effective tale in only two five-page segments.
It's an art that, sadly, seems to be lost to today's creators.

Reading Room: Space Voyagers "Four Tombs"

After too long a period, we rejoin the... they continue their never-reprinted adventures from the 1970s!
Note the script credit for this tale from DC's Rima the Jungle Girl #1 (1974) is incorrect.
Robert Kanigher penned the story, not Jack Oleck.
The unmistakable art is by the underappreciated Alex Nino.

But the end is not yet in sight!
There is more of this tale to be told...
