COVER DETAILS

Space Action #1 Bethlehem pedigree (Ace, 1952) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. This Gerber "uncommon" issue was the premiere ...
Pencils: Lou Cameron

Inks: Lou Cameron

Letters: typeset

Notes: Art credit according to Jim Gray "I am almost certain that the cover to Space Action 1 is by Lou Cameron; the pose of the guy throwing the punch is pure Cameron. I think it's early, before his style really developed."


STORY DETAILS

Title: Invaders from a Lost Galaxy

Characters: Protector Karnock; King Stephan; Space Admiral Jon Lasim; Valya; Administrator Henderson; Ulgar

Synopsis: Sirion, an outer planet, is ruled by King Stephan. King Stephan's younger brother, Karnock, makes plans to usurp the throne while the King is away battling alien invasion. Stephan sends Space Admiral Jon Lasim to investigate. Lasim falls for Stephan's daughter and is hunted by the despotic Karnock.

Pages: 7.670

Pencils: Lou Cameron

Inks: Rocco "Rocke" Mastroserio

Letters: typeset (Leroy lettering)

Notes: This is positively Cameron on pencils, probably inked by Mastroserio (as was the case in Ace's horror books first half of 1952). This whole issue seems to be a Cameron-Mastroserio collaboration. Previous indexer stated: Overstreet says Lou Cameron art in this issue, but I only see it (maybe) in a few panels in this story.
