PLANET COMICS #41 Partial Facsimile

About Planet Comics:
Planet Comics was a science fiction comic book title published by Fiction House from January 1940 to Winter 1953. It was the first comic book dedicated wholly to science fiction. Like most of Fiction House's early comics titles, Planet Comics was a spinoff of a pulp magazine, in this case Planet Stories. Like the magazine before it, Planet Comics features space operatic tales of muscular, heroic space adventurers who are quick with their "ray pistols" and always running into gorgeous women who need rescuing from bug-eyed space aliens or fiendish interstellar bad guys.
About the Creation:
A recreation of the classic comic book cover art from PLANET COMICS #41 (1946, Jack Doolin) from the Golden Age of Comics and one of the early science-fiction adventure books. "I’m terrified of snakes. G. Gordon Liddy was afraid of rats so he ate one! I knew I had to recreate this cover. I wanted to give the robot more action and life. I thought the original looked a little too stiff. The girl on the table was a personal challenge because I had only done one other like it in my career. Now I know it wasn’t a fluke.” - John Hebert
