Bookshop Product information:
I never got to see the Tom Corbett TV show but I picked up a couple or maybe two of the novels plus, of course, the entire run of Dell comicbooks. This is SF as it should be, with ‘space’ substituted for ‘science’. Here we see the wonder and unbelievable expanse of the cosmos that surrounds us, ringed planets and moons, space pirates, lost races, and even a spaceship graveyard, This book is for every boy that lives secretly inside every man who ever marveled at the saucer spaceship in FORBIDDEN PLANET.
 
If you can buy only one book this month, make it this one.
 
Artists include Alden McWilliams, John Lehti and Frank Thorne.
 
Volume 1 features DELL Four Color #378 (#1) February 1952, #400 (#2)  May 1952, #421 (#3)  August-October 1952 and DELL Tom Corbett, Space Cadet #4 Nov/Jan 1953, #5 Feb/Apr 1953, #6 May/Jul 1953, #7 Aug/Oct 1953.
