Just wanted to put the word out that, as of today, I've finished the entire SPACE CONQUERORS! project at my blog. Wow! From 1952-72, with art by Al Stenzel, George Evans, Lou Fine, Alden McWilliams & Gray Morrow, it's been an fun ride (and not a little bit of work cleaning these up).
If anyone has any info about artists I'm missing, I'd appreciate it. Several people have suggested, before I ever started this, that there may be several other artists involved, but at the moment, nobody can quite be sure, because most of them tended to work in the "Johnstone & Cushing" house style.

It took several weeks to do the entire run. My feeling was, BOYS LIFE had already posted the entire series online, FREE for anyone to read, so to me, this in no way should be seen as a Copyright violation. I'm sure not making money off it. The series ISN'T being reprinted, so I'm not depriving anyone else of money either. What I'm doing is making the strips EASIER to access, and the images WAY BETTER-LOOKING.
Of course, I posted the links here, because of the GRAY MORROW connection. Who'da guessed? The strips I read when I was a kid ('68-'69) were ALL by Morrow, and were coming out at about the EXACT SAME TIME as Morrow's episodes of SPIDER-MAN!!!
I never knew I was such a Morrow fan all these years...
Isn't it just absurd that Gray Morrow's version of SPIDER-MAN was probably seen by more people than all the SPIDER-MAN comic-books ever, ever published... and yet, thanks to John Romita turning him down, Morrow NEVER drew the comic-book?????
