Sky Masters (Oct 27, 1958)

So just a small one today but iconic of the late 1950s: Sky Masters of the Space Force by Jack Kirby and inked by Wally Wood.

This popular comic strip was very successful as an image of America's future in space. It was about Sky Masters of the Space Force, one of the first U.S. astronauts and his adventures.

This strip is from the first adventure of Sky Masters called "First Man in Space" where he discovers the danger of "space raptures" I love the Von Braun space shuttles cruising in orbit.

  1. Kirby really got around. I know people who at times worked with him. He was dynamite. I'll have to check out his Sky Masters.
