Fantastic Adventures

These are some cool splash pages from Fantastic Adventures in 1939 that show what they believe our contact with the inhabitants of our solar system would look like. I love this kind of speculation from the weird environments to the creative space suits. I wonder if they consulted legit scientists for their opinion or just let the art department run wild. They do seem to look at such factors as environment and gravity but from there these look like the kind of creatures my elementary students would create in science class (heh heh..Uranus). In fact these are getting printed for my files so I can use them in the future if I decide to go back to the classroom which after two years is something I am missing very much.
