Number 1482: Captain Venture and the Land Beneath the Sea
Spiegle not only drew horse operas, he could draw space operas with equal skill. He drew Space Family Robinson (later Lost in Space, to cash in on the popular TV series which had lifted the premise of Space Family Robinson.) The Captain Venture strip was a backup in Space Family Robinson/Lost in Space, from issues #6 to #30. Later Gold Key reprinted two issues of reprints of these strips. What I’m showing today are the reprints from issue #1 (1968).
