Gettin' Spiritual

A couple of weeks ago Pappy showed daily Spirit comic strips which inspired me to pull out my own Spirit collection. These are selections from the Warren SPIRIT #1, 1974. The cover is by Eisner, painted by Basil Gogos. The interior color is by Richard Corben.

Jack Williamson's Second Shell

One of Jack Williamson's early short stories, "The Second Shell" is a wild ride featuring aliens living above the heaviside layer of the atmosphere, a would-be world conqueror, a stuttering scientist, a pilot, a guy and his gal. Oops, I forgot the mysterious red airplanes with stubby wings...

Scanned from AIR WONDER STORIES, Vol. 1 No. 5, November 1929.
