Saturday Matinee: The Spectral Fury of Space Ghost!

Alex_Ross_SpaceGhostEvery Saturday I find a movie or clip that I think will appeal to the fans of this blog. Since most of you enjoy action/adventure, I tend to focus on something that falls into that category. This week we’re looking at the glory that was and is: Space Ghost! This Alex Toth designed hero was one of my favorites when I was a kid. I watched his original Sixties appearances and the Eighties revival until I knew every episode by heart. I even enjoyed Space Ghost Coast to Coast, though I’m sad that a whole generation knows this fun character only through that interpretation. Hell, I even liked the “gritty” comic book version that DC published that Joe Kelly wrote!

Space Ghost is exciting, pulpy fun with great visuals, awesome music and wonderfully exciting plots. Today we’re looking at “Space Sargasso” from the Sixties show and “Attack of the Space Sharks” from the 1980s revival. Enjoy!
