Bookshop Product information:
Long before Star Wars, there was Planet Comics, home to a veritable parade of steely-jawed interstellar adventures and some of the most gorgeous damsels in distress you could ever with to find.
 
More than fifty years since Planet closed up shop ex-Marvel, editor Roy Thomas presents the original issues collected together.
 
Volume Five includes a special introduction from Michael T Gilbert as well as all the Planet Comics’ stories digitally enhanced and faithfully reproduced from the original comics.
 
Volume Five features stories from issues 17-20 from March 1942 – September 1942.
 
Why are we publishing Volume 5 before Volume 4?

Below is the official word from Roy Thomas:
"Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have published Planet Comics - Collected Works, Volume Five before Volume Four. 
It has proved impossible, to date, to obtain good copies or scans  of Planet Comics #13 & #15 of high-quality condition.   We will, of course, print Vol. 4 at the earliest possible time... but meanwhile we felt readers would prefer that we bypass and go ahead with Vol. 5, 6, et al."
