I Shall Destroy All The Civilized Planets


Discovered this book while on vacation last week. It's been out awhile, but well worth getting.
Fletcher Hanks is one of the most unusal comics artist around. His stories may be repetitive, but they hold a certain fascination for lovers of the bizarre. The fun is in the punishment of the bad guys. The Super Wizard Stardust, Fantomah, Mystery Woman of the Jungle, when it comes to dealing out justice, Dirty Harry was a piker next to these guys.

Thanks for your kind words about my book, "I Shall Destroy All the Civilized Planets, The Comics of Fletcher Hanks". It has been a labor of love from the start and I am thrilled by the reception it has received. The book has been nominated for TWO Eisner Awards!

I urge those unfamiliar with Hanks' work to go to the website and check out a full length story on the BONUS page!

You are most welcome. I loved your story at the back of the book as much as the Fletcher Hanks material.
Great twist ending. Again, what he said, check it out.

Hanks' work stands out of his peers' mostly on the account of its weirdness ,but the stories make a great read !
