How I loved the covers of these Dell issues and hated the interiors! Even now I cannot bring myself to sit down and read an entire issue.

And how the very phrase Space Cadet added to anybody's name can lead to laughter.

The phrase "space cadet" took on another meaning in the late 1960s, at least among some. I agree these covers are great, but have not seen the interior of one.

Mike and Larry are spacy, of course, only in the finest Tom Corbett tradition.

Add Mike Horvat to the Space Cadet ranks. I had a mint T.C.,S.C. thermos that I sold a while back. I kind of wish I still had it.

I saw at Comixology.com that some outfit called BlueWater comics is offering these digitally for two bucks a pop. You can go there and preview the interiors --as you guys wrote, awful.
