Vargo Statten SF Magazine

As promised, here's the first part of the Vargo Statten SF Magazine gallery, a supplement to the recent gallery of John Richards covers. Richards was responsible for the February, April, September, November and December issues for 1954 and the January 1955 issue (issues 2, 3, 6, 7, 8 & 9). The artist for the remaining issues was Ron Turner—which is excuse enough to put these up!

You'll notice that there were some oddities with the magazine, namely that the covers for issues 6 & 9 and 7 & 8 are repeated. Annoyingly, my issue 10 has a damaged cover—so if anyone has a better copy, an improved scan would be very welcome.

Update: 19 July 2008

Thanks to Phil Stephensen-Payne, I've replaced the damaged issue 10 with a far superior (and complete) version.

Part 2 tomorrow.
