UFO Flying Saucers!
In 1977 my dad took me to see the Mel Brooks movie High Anxiety. I don’t remember why but we ended up seeing Close Encounters instead and my love of UFOs began. That same year, a long running comic book series called UFO Flying Saucers came to an end. It was published by Goldkey. The series started in 1968. I got my hands on a few issues recently. I’ve been told the full run is available in a torrent but I, uh, wouldn’t know about such things.
The first issue is viewable here:

It is a great introduction to early & mid twentieth century UFO cases. A lot is packed into the giant size, 68 page first issue. So much is crammed in that each UFO incident is hardly covered. It’s more like a list of events and a surprisingly dull book for such an incredible topic. Lucky for me, the Internet has tons of details about most of the encounters mentioned in this book. Lucky for you, I’ve provided links to different sites that discuss these stories.
A few of them are skeptics sites, just to mix things up a bit. [dt_gap height=”10″ /]
[dt_gap height=”10″ /] Over the years Goldkey comics was bought and sold several times. They’re long out of business but their catalog of books currently belongs to DreamWorks. Is it just a coincidence that the man in charge of DreamWorks is Steven Spielberg, director of Close Encounters & E.T. ?
I’m pretty sure it is.
