" Orbiting the Moon is the most fantastic fleet of rocketry the World has yet produced " - with these words the very first PROJECT SWORD comic strip began in issue 19 of SOLO comics on the 24th June 1967, 43 years ago today! It was the start of a long and beautiful SWORD summer. We were all wonderfully young and wanted to be either astronauts or paleontologists! Well, here's a taste of that cosmic season with the very first strip. Enjoy! - and let the sun shine, the Mister Softee ice cream drip all over and the SWORD fleet fly!
