Perisphere Payne-"Arnold Hardy"-1940

SCIENCE COMICS may well be THE most psychotronic comic book of them all, featuring weird but simplistic stories and even weirder but also simplistic art! Comic books tended to copy popular comic strips in those days and this one seems to be a Flash Gordon rip-off.

The story is perhaps a bit empty, but I really love the visuals here. The art is indeed simple, but not crude.

In an earlier appearance Payne wore a peaked Boy Scout cap and looked really silly. I like him better bareheaded.
