Stunning artwork, nothing less.
Is this a nod towards the mid-1940s feature "MYSTA OF THE MOON" from Planet Comics?

SpaceLord: I'm not familiar with the comic, but this novel was originally written in the 1930s.
The artwork certainly is stunning! Nice to hear from you and thanks for your comments.

Then it's probably the other way round - and no surprise.
