Peter's Adventure in Space (1952)
A bit of fun fiction today, a give-away comic from 1952. These were usually generic and then the business giving them away would print information about itself on the back.
Peter's Adventure in Space 10 pp. 8"X5" 1952
The seems to have been given away by the British manufacturer: Trimsona.
Trimsona was a process or coating to make clothing easier to clean.
I like the strong coloring and style of the illustrations, making it feel like a great boy's adventure. An alien takes over a young boys and mind and makes him fly to Mars. Where he stops an invasion and keeps earth from being blown up by an enormous bomb. Enjoy!
