Vintage Sci-Fi Cover Gallery

Swing over to Graphic Swing for a well-selected collection of Vintage Sci-Fi comic book covers. This one–Captain Future, Man of Tomorrow–started in WW2, 1940, there’s a tag for war bonds in the lower right corner. What is that cube, with connections to his head? Who is that beautiful woman? Pre Hayes-code pulp comics were so lurid, so obscenely frightening and racy. This one, with rich color inks and bold illustration, is well-preserved.

From Wikipedia:

Captain Future is a science fictional hero pulp character – a space-traveling scientist cum adventurer – originally published in self-titled American pulp magazines between 1940 and 1951. The character was created by editor Mort Weisinger and principally authored by Edmond Hamilton. There have subsequently been a number of adaptations and derivative works, most significantly a 1978-79 anime adaptation, which was dubbed into several languages and proved very popular, particularly in French and Arabic.
