Sky Masters Original Art-1959


Found on the 'Net, I was less than one month old when this lovely SKY MASTERS OF THE SPACE FORCE strip saw print on Feb 2nd of 1959. Note the unlikely sign "Air P'r'sr Guage." Apparently the letterer couldn't letter small enough to actual print "pressure" legibly and it upset him so that he forgot how to spell "gauge." Either that or Kirby quick-pencilled the words in figuring the letterer would fix it but the letterer figured that if Kirby put 'em there like that, that's what Kirby wanted!

  1. He could have just turned the three words sideways!
