Jungle Queens and Space Rangers 4: PLANET COMICS


Planet Comics ran for 73 issues between 1940 and 1954, and sported consistently amazing covers. You can read all 73 for free online at comicbookplus.com (right HERE) (Thanks to Mike Britt for the tip), and you can peruse all the covers in Todd Frye's new book Jungle Queens and Space Rangers. We present here but a few.

Comics and pulp magazines with covers showing bug-eyed monsters menacing scantily-dressed young women. In the WWII era, that was what a lot of people thought of if you mentioned the term, "science fiction."
