Thrilling Science Fiction 2
A big, thick book of vintage Golden Age reprints of the best in science fiction comics. Leading off another Reed Crandall “Interplanetary Police” story from the Buster Brown shoe store giveaway comics, this one entitled “Mirror Of Doom”, inked by Ray Willner, again co-starring the villainess, The Space Siren.Then, it’s Steve Ditko sci-fi with “The Planet That Vanished”, and “I Was Captured By The Abominable Snowman”. No G. A. s-f comic would be complete without something from Fiction House Comic’s Planet, and this volume has no less than SEVEN full story reprints from the run of that venerable comic. Unfortunately, like most Fiction House stories, they are untitled, but this issue includes: Mysta Of The Moon, by Chuck Winter, Auro, Lord Of Jupiter, by George Evans, Gale Allen, by Fran Hopper, Auro again, this time drawn by Graham Ingels, Futura, Star Pirate by Leonard Starr, and “The Martian Plague”, illustrated by Mike Sekowsky and Bernard Sachs. More ouiter space fun than you can shake a retrorocket at!! 76 pages, color painted cover, interiors are black and white with graytones. Standard comic book format. Printed in 1999.
