About this title


Early fifties science-fiction comics can seem light years from contemporary tastes, but Jet Powers, from cult favorite Bob Powell remains as entertaining and eye-catching as ever! This deluxe hardcover collects the complete adventures of Jet Powers, known as "The Captain of Science," as he battles his diabolical adversary Mr. Sinn with the best 1950s-era technology at his disposal. Includes all of the Powell-created stories from very difficult to find original sources Jet Powers 1-4 and The American Air Forces. With an introduction by Steve Rude (Nexus) and an essay by Eisner-winning author James Vance (Kings in Disguise) and Fangoria columnist John Wooley.

About the Author:

Bob Powell was an artist who was mainly active during the Golden Age of American comics. Born as Stanley Robert Pawlowski, he attended the Pratt Institute in New York City, and went to work for the Eisner-Iger studios in the late 1930s. He worked for many companies through this studios, like Fiction House (Jumbo Comics), Fox (Wonderworld Comics, Mystery Men Comics), and Harvey (Ted Parrish in Speed Comics), Timely, Quality (Crack Comics, Hit Comics, Military Comics, Smash Comics, Feature Comics). His most famous work during his Eisner-Iger years was Sheena, which he created for Fiction House's Jumbo Comics. Later on, Powell went to work in Will Eisner's personal studio, and co-plotted the first Blackhawk story in Quality's Military Comics, and co-created Spirit of 76 for Harvey's Pocket Comics. When the Spirit Sunday Comic Book section started in 1940, Powell took on the artwork of the Mr Mystic back-up feature, which was written by Eisner. After a while, Powell took on the writing as well, and he continued Mr. Mystic until he joined the Air Force in 1943. He officially changed his name from Stanely Pawlowski to S. Robert Powell in 1943.
