Comment: Fiction House had some of the most striking, colorful covers of their time. But some covers, like this one, seem like nothing but green and orange. Was that a creative decision, do you think, or were some of their red inks so volatile that they couldn't survive?

Comment: The cover is mostly orange and green by design, but the flying guy is red. The colors have faded a bit on this scan. See a better image at Heritage: https://bit.ly/3vljAvo
