FOREWORD: by Carmine Infantino

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. We are making the whole run available again from the original groundbreaking awe-filled Planet Comics that appeared from Fiction House over a thirteen-year period ending in 1953. They’re all here . . . Flint Baker, Reef Ryan, The Space Rangers, Gale Allen, Star Pirate, Mysta of the Moon, Norge Benson plus many more AND a bevy of the most scantily-clad females you’re likely to see outside of Silvio Dante’s Bada Bing strip joint in The Sopranos.

We worked hard on the PS volume of Planet Comics but when we got the finished item, it wasn't good. We spent a few hours trying to convince ourselves we were just being picky . . . telling each other it was okay really . . . and then we went home and didn't sleep. The following day, we trashed all the copies and recalled all the trade orders that had already been dispatched. Although a few rogue copies did get out there (collectors' items for sure!), we'd made up our minds to reprint the entire run . . . and it was going to be glorious. Within a couple of days more, after lengthy investigations, we went out and bought a complete run of the book in wonderful condition (boy, the checkbook took a hammering that day, I can tell ya!) and we scanned in every single page, whether story or ad. Then we spent further riches and time cleaning them up still more. The result is outstanding. But, hey . . . don't take our word for it. Take a look for yourself. With these Planet volumes stacking up ahead of us for a fair distance, PS is truly reaching for the stars. So buckle up and press the start button: next stop Alpha Centauri!

However, we’ve sent out several copies direct to folks who ordered through the website so I’d like for anyone who’s received a copy to tear out the title page—keep the rest of the book (heck, Chauncy . . . we’ve got enough of the damned things without yours as well!)—and send the page along to me at:

Be sure to include your name and address. Then we’ll send a copy of the revised and reprinted version as soon as it’s in from the printers. If you’ve got any questions, then go ahead and call us on + (0) 1964 537575 or email us . Who knows . . . we might even have some answers!
