Space Garbage!



What's fun about Kirby's short run of Race For the Moon stories is how much story he packed into five pages. In "Space Garbage" he has a space criminal, an exploration team, and a medical discovery. Any one of those ideas could carry a whole story.

This story starts out with a startling scene: Wiley Breck, the criminal, is shackled to an asteroid "until his air runs out." Apparently his "friends" did it to him, and Wiley is the guy who originated the idea. But with friends like that...

I always find Kirby and Williamson an uneasy combination. Two great artists, but with very different ways of working.

Fun little story... you ask me Kirby and Williamson make a pretty damn good combo.

The splash is an interesting precursor of the titans chained to asteroids in NEW GODS. Obviously an image that stuck in Jack's mind.
