Hey Gang!
We're desperately trying to complete Basil Wolverton's wonderful SPACEHAWK feature that ran inside of Novelty's TARGET COMICS for 30 issues.  We are just two stories short of the complete run of the feature.  Target Comics v1 #7 still elude us.


Unfortunately we haven't had much luck tracking this down so we are reaching out directly to the public in hopes someone out there with great taste and an open heart might be willing to scan this elusive issue for us.  Or even just the Spacehawk story so everyone can finally see them all on the site - for free!  Ideally they would be scanned at 300dpi for us to edit in Photoshop before sharing the final results.

We can even arrange to have your books scanned for you.  Trusted DCM Staffer RANGERHOUSE would be happy to safely scan and return your book to you and we can take care of the rest of the process.  Ranger has scanned thousands of books for generous people that shared them with us.  His amazing scanner is the bee's knees.  You can see pictures of it in this old topic if you scroll down a bit.  http://tinyurl.com/ndtzg5z

Please use the CONTACT US link FOUND HERE, or on the Download site under the main banner.  We can help you through the process.

BTW, these two stories have been reprinted more than once but we can't share modern reprints on the site for copyright reasons.  We need scans made from an original comic.

And if you happened to own other pre-1960 golden-age comics please give our WANTED LIST a look and see if they are still needed for the site ON THIS LINK HERE.  There are about 5000 books we would love to find for sharing on the site!

Thanks for taking the time to read this.  Take care,
-Yoc

Hi EF,
Even if it's incomplete we would LOVE to have a scan of your issue to share on DCM.
PLEASE consider scanning it or letting one of our trusted scanners do it for you.
You can use this CONTACT US link or send me a Private Message and we can make arrangements or if you have questions about scanning it yourself.

Take care,

Hey gang, Rangerhouse was able to track down and scan Target #8 but we are still looking for a scan of Target #7.
PLEASE, if you own this book please consider scanning it for posterity.

Easternfront must be selling his version because there is one on ebay again. It is missing the cover wrap and the the page wrap after that. That is: missing the first two panel pages of the SpaceHawk story (with the Slurns and Zorg, lol) and the last two pages of the last story.

People are bragging about their 'beater' copies on CGC board as well, lol.

Ok, I've got one. It's coverless and missing the first wrap page, but I got the first two page fills of Spacehawk from some sci scans on ebay.
I'm still trying to get the last two pages of the Calling 2R story somewhere (maybe CGC board folks could post the pics?) I might copy the ifc from #8. That would be an almost complete Target #7! The long sought might be here for an early ten year anniversary gift!
