Tom Corbett Space Cadet – July 1955 – Digest Size Comic Book Reprint


First there was Captain Video, then there was Space Patrol, and a few months later, in early 1951, there was Tom Corbett, Space Cadet. Tom Corbett holds the unique distinction of being one of the few shows to air on NBC, CBS, ABC, and DuMont over the course of it’s 4 years on the air.

Like Captain Video and Space Patrol, thousands of episodes were produced, but only a few survive. Unlike Captain Video and Space Patrol, Tom Corbett Space Cadet was the subject of a series of children’s books from Grosset and Dunlap, a well preserved radio show, and two series of Comic Books, which each ran for several issues.

This is the first issue of Tom Corbett Space Cadet that we’re offering on our site. It will not be the last! I chose to start with this one because I think the cover is bizarre and fantastic.

This is a digest sized reprint.
