Super-Science Fiction August 1957

Illustrations by Emsh, Orban, and Bowman

I love the cover of this one. The vibrant green pops out at you drawing your eye to the typical 50s damsel in distress.  Emsh delivers as usual.  It is cute to note that the spine brags “all stories complete”, since it wasn’t necessarily the case at the time in other publications.

There are some fun illustrations in this one, but nothing really mind blowing. If I were to choose one for a poster, it would most likely be the guy with the ball on his back that looks like he’s playing the concertina.
