The Space Ghost and the White Knight

Another Net-grab. The fact that these two apparent hero characters appear next to a rough for Wood's Harvey Comics story, EARTHMAN, would seem to date them to around that same point in the mid-sixties. Also, note the Knight's similarity to RADIAN from WHAM-O GIANT COMICS, also from that period. All of this makes me wonder if Woody was perhaps already mulling over in his mind some sort of bigger sci-fi super hero concept than just a few individual stories. Perhaps this was the gestation of what soon thereafter appeared as the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS?
Just a thought.

  1. the flying leaping figure in the second illo is a much-used Woody pose. Did he swipe his own stuff?
