Startling Comics 53, 1948

Alex Schomburg does it again with another knockout airbrushed science fiction cover, with strong "good girl" overtones. It's sad to note, but this would be the last issue of this series - which had more than it's fair share of classic covers, many of them by Schomburg.

This issue also marked the last appearance of Lance Lewis, Space Detective, and the last appearance of Tygra, too. I suspect there weren't many, but surely a few readers must have been pleased that Sea Eagle survived to appear again in Thrilling Comics #72....
