Tommy Tomorrow-Curt Swan-1949

I was going to clean this up a bit but I got to thinking that the yellowing sort of reflected the fate of that bright, shiny future we were all promised for so long. I remember the shorts-wearing Planeteer of the sixties. This early version is more Flash Gordon-y and Swan is clearly still refining his art.

  1. Interesting to see a Curt Swan-drawn Tommy Tomorrow story. You can see hints in some of the faces and figures of the artist he would become. Most of the TT stories I've seen were drawn by Jim Mooney, though I think the stories near the end of the run were drawn by Lee Elias. As usual, thanks for posting this.
