During the 1950s space exploration dominated science fiction, and a very distinct art style accompanied it. It is a beautifully unique style with its muted colors, its gradients, and its signature curves. The style was an embodiment of the wonderfully vague possibilities of space exploration. Comic books of the era depicted aliens from far away planets, space ships that traveled millions of lightyears away at the speed of light to discover things unimaginable to humans. The art style and the stories it told allowed the viewer to connect with this vacuum of collective excitement and infinite possibility that pulls humankind forward. This art provided a way to escape reality and imagine a future where your problems would be more interesting, and your horizons would be so much broader. At the rate of technological development, such a future did not seem that far away. These stories told you that soon this would be your reality. Soon, the future would arrive. Soon, we would be able to stand with our loved ones and watch the sunset from the moons of Saturn.
