Wednesday Cover: PLANET COMICS
Over on my Facebook profile over the last month or so, I've been posting a lot of cover art from the Planet Stories pulp magazine and the Planet Comics comic book series. Both publications have been a source of inspiration to me as I worked to finish up my own "planet comic," Perils On Planet X.
This cover, for the 71st issue of Planet Comics, is one of my all-time favorite comic book covers. How can anyone resist the combination of damsel in distress, rifle-wielding space man, and 12-foot tall, green-skinned alien Viking satyr?
