About This Item

What can be more ephemeral?
4 handmade chapbook-ish "comics" written and illustrated by a school boy named George Lohman, some dated 1952. The stories include elements of futuristic battles, exotic creatures, advanced weaponry and space travel, offering a rare and charming and perhaps a little disturbing glimpse into the mind of a boy steeped in pulp science fiction and eerily informed by the atomic bomb and supersonic jet fighters. While the plots may seem simplistic—something attacks something else — the graphics hint at a developing command of composition and design, telling a story using only minimal text. Though we assume legions of teen scribblers in the 1950's produced similar work, the paucity in cataloged collections suggests only a fraction survived—usually as a published author's archived juvenilia.

George P. Lohman Jr., 1938-2020; Hamilton College (1960), had career in advertising and graphic design in the Pittsburgh area before retiring to Ridgefield, CT. where he volunteered at the library & collected Sci-Fi novels.
