Starting with the February, 1946 issue, the comic book Captain Marvel Adventures included a 2-page short story by "Eando Binder" (Otto O. Binder). Each story featured Lt. Jon Jarl of the Space Patrol. These juvenile space operas — designed to appeal to kids — featured daring-do by a two-fisted young member of the Space Patrol. In a solar system where seemingly every planet and moon supports life (and the asteroid belt harbors an endless supply of space pirates and criminals), Jon Jarl always saves the day.

If you've seen the early TV adventures of Captain Video and His Video Rangers, Space Patrol (not related to Binder's series), or Tom Corbett, Space Cadet — which were clearly influenced by Binder's writing (as well as the shared universe of "space opera" that had been developed in Amazing Stories magazine under editor Ray Palmer) — you will know what you're in for...a ride into the Wild West of outer space, where physics and logic never get in the way of a good story!
