Halloween in Space, Part One!!
Some 1962 Bill Molno space art for Charlton Comics. I love Molno's Charlton space stuff, and he also did some nice horror material for that company in the 1970s. Not a lot of the latter, unfortunately.
Ten space-themed from the 1950s and 1960s (maybe earlier, in the case of the Hal Herzon sides), including a Star Wars/Close Encounters medley from the LP Pizza & Pipes, which I'll explain someday when I have time. In space, no one can hear you say, "Wow! We're in space!!"
