Limited edition of 500 copies. Wonderful collection of four complete 64 page stories by Ron Turner and Kurt Caesar featuring the classic SF strips Jet Ace Logan. Plus comprehensive artist checklist and introduction.
Ron Turner has long been regarded as one of the most innovative and stylish sci-fi illustrators the UK has ever produced. For when lesser artists' spacecraft were cigar tubes with fins, Ron's were of the most complex design, yet amazingly detailed and appearing as if they could actually work. And when other artists gave us antennae-waggling Martians, Ron introduced us to some quite bizarre galactic beings that seemed drawn from life.
There is no doubting the quality of Kurt Caesar's art, stunning and astonishingly realistic, in particular anything mechanical, and 'things': rockets, landscapes, cars, buildings, helicopters. He had a way of packing his panels with tiny dots and lines, whilst also leaving off edges, to create an almost photographic effect. His British work is wonderfully compelling and tinged by his wartime experiences. The Piebald Men
