A Little Sci-Fi Inspiration from Basil Wolverton

Some classic image from the 1930's by Basil Wolverton, via Golden Age Comic Book Stories. Enjoy!

Are these things like a tourist's delight on this planet, or an actual menace?

As alien as our seas are, I can only imagine at actual alien seas.

Best part of this illo - the sci-fi utility shorts the aliens are wearing.

"I told you damn kids to play outside!"

I find myself drawn to 30's era spaceships more and more as I grow older. I have this weird feeling they got it right.

This and Leng were the prime inspirations for the plateau of Tsanjan in my Nod setting.

Saturn is proof that reality trumps imagination every time.
