I Shall Destroy All The Civilized Planets
Fletcher Hanks worked for only a few years in the earliest days of the comic book industry (1939-1941).
Because he worked in a gutter medium for second-rate publishers on third rate characters, his work has been largely forgotten. But among aficionados he is legendary. Hanks drew in a variety of genres depicting science-fiction saviors, white women of the jungle, and he-man loggers.
This book collects 15 of his best stories in one volume followed by an Afterword which solves the mystery of 'Whatever Happened to Fletcher Hanks', the mysterious cartoonist who created a hailstorm of tales of brutal retribution ... and then mysteriously vanished.
