Blue Bolt, 1951

This cover is special just for it's sheer artistry. The "porthole" panels along the spine are fun, but can be distracting, and the scenario seems contrived (free-floating spacemen armed with rifles shooting at passing spaceships?!?) while the background starfield is flat, geometric, and impossibly crowded - but artist L.B. Cole amazingly makes it all look incredibly good with his trademark bright, poster-style colors, balanced composition, and clean lines.

Content-wise this issue is cool for it's 8-page Spacehawk story by Basil Wolverton, and early Joe Simon and Jack Kirby art in the Blue Bolt story.
