Basil Wolverton was one of the most unique and controversial stylists ever to work in comics and the field of illustration. Equally at home with horror and comedy subjects, he was also one of the earliest and greatest exponents of science fiction comics. His greatest triumph is undoubtedly the pre-WWII adventures of a mysterious steely-jawed he-man known only as Spacehawk. The strip debuted in the June 1940 issue of Target Comics (volume 1 #5) and ran for thirty issues.
Spacehawk was a grim, relentless avenger of the innocent, prowling the star-lanes and outer reaches, and Wolverton's stark meticulous art served only to highlight the singular appearance of his alien monstrosities and landscapes.
