The Space Ace!

I adore this 1951 classic comic by Bob Powell. When I first came in contact with Major Inapak The Space Ace in 1971, I was thrilled to actually have in my boyish hands a comic of such vintage. I well remember thinking that twenty years was a impossibly immense time and that such gems must be valuable. I treasured it, but would learn some years later that apparently a great cache of these were discovered around the time I got mine and were flooded onto the market.

The comic ain't worth much as a collectible, save in the hearts of fanboys like me. I'm happy to make this comic book a part of my blog. If you've read it before online enjoy it again, if you haven't ready yourself for a surprisingly well-crafted treat. For a comic with such small ambitions as selling some chocolate drink this is a gem.

Rip Off


  1. Back in the 70's there was a "warehouse find" of this title and I was able to pick one up for cheap. It's a swell comic.
