Wolverton In Space

It’s safe to say that few approached Golden Age Sci-Fi comics – or any genre for that matter – in the same manner as Basil Wolverton. His bizarre creatures and exotic tableau ensured the creator’s stories would always stand apart from the pack.

Here’s one of his earlier efforts for Centaur Publications that starred the generically titled “Space Patrol.” Wolverton’s “sand rats” and refrigerator-esque space-suit designs, however, are anything but generic.

The story – written and drawn by Wolverton – originally appeared in Amazing Mystery Funnies #23 (Centaur Publications, August 1940).
