COMIC BOOK COMPULSIVE — Jetman #3

As I’ve said before, one of the unexpected consequences of doing these things is discovering things  that I could never have ever imagined, for instance, Jetman, a (presumably) Australian comic from the 1950′s.  I  could find absolutely nothing about it on the internet, though while searching I discovered another foreign comic called Jetman.   In 1951 Canadian publisher Bell Features published four issues of a comic called Jetman that as far as I can tell were just random American comic reprints with no character named “Jetman” (like this issue which features reprints from Blackhawk #24 and a Reed Crandall cover)

The Australian version is definitely a kind of interesting,with the strong art (that to me shows a very definite George Wunder influence) and a standard space age superhero.  He’s billed as “The Space Ranger” yet in this outing he stays on earth battling evil with his super science; as to who or what Jetman actually is, we’re never given a clue.

    You’re right about the George Wunder influence…along with some Frank Robbins…but we mustn’t overlook those Jack Kamen babes.

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
