SKY MASTERS OF THE SPACE FORCE

Distributed by: George Matthew Adams Service
Creators: Jack Kirby (artist), Dick and Dave Wood (writers)
The Sky Masters daily strip debuted on September 8, 1958. The Sunday version was added exactly five months later. Pertaining, as it did, to the recent world-wide flare-up of interest in space travel, even as minor a comics syndicate as Adams was able to place it in over 300 papers.

The name "Sky Masters" did not refer to people entering the sky and establishing mastery in that locale, but was actually the name of the hero, Major Sky Masters of the near-future military branch, the United States Space Force. The Space Force operated a 1950s-style wheel-shaped space station, and traveled between the station and Cape Canaveral in vehicles that looked like the Mercury space capsules that were soon to become familiar sights in the news. It was, to use a phrase that later became popular in describing near-future sci-fi, "as up-to-date as tomorrow's headlines".
