The Original Tom Corbett

 ORTC   (Eternity, 1990-1991)

™ and ©1990 WadeWilliams Productions and Malibu Graphics.

“Tom Corbett, Space Cadet” was a popular television show in the 1950s. Its five-year run inspired a daily newspaper cartoon strip, written and drawn by Ray Bailey.

This ten-issue series reprints the entire three-year strip in order, presented together for the first time in nearly forty years. It tells the story of Tom Corbett and two other cadets, at Space Academy, a futuristic version of West Point. Here, young men and women are in training hoping to become full members of the Solar Guard, a militaristic police force dedicated to protecting Earth and her sister planets from space pirates and alien invaders.
