Meet Space Cabby!


(Commissioned sketch by Benjamin Birdie.)

Space Cabby was a regular feature in DC comics' 'Mystery in Space' title in the 1950s, and one of my favorite characters. What's not to like? He's a cabby...in space!

I ran a feature on my blog called "Space Cabby Sunday" and decided to share the entries here. You'll have to click through for the stories, but at least you can get the scoop on this beloved comics icon!
