The Moon-Man!, Strange Tales #42

There is something satisfying about a small story that expands into a much larger theme. The four page lengh of this tale is just long enough to develop some interest and concern for the character, without any sentimentality. There are plot difficulties, like even in 1955 the Earth had telescopes powerful enough to see any floating cities on the moon. I guess that could be explained by a lunar population existing only on the far side of our moon, but what the story says anyway is we see what we want to see.

Happy October 2017: Halloween Octopus and Mermaid : Color

When I showed this colored version to someone, they were amazed at how color can be used to organize an image. I love the sparkling texture with lost and found shapes in the black and white line art version; but it is interesting how the colored piece appears less "busy" but still has all the same details.
