GRAHAM INGELS and "Auro, Lord of Jupiter" (1949)

The guy who eventually came to be known as "Ghastly" Graham Ingels did a variety of stories for Planet Comics, including some in this long-running series featuring Auro, Lord of Jupiter. Sadly, much of his fine line-work was muddied up by cheap printing on cheap paper, but when JonTheScanner, our hero of the week, posted Planet #61, July 1949, on ComicBookPlus, he kindly included these pages of original art, providing a glimpse of what it really looked like. Thanks, Jon!
