One of my first major projects on this website was to create a page for the Wonder Women of History about the backup feature in golden age Wonder Woman comics which chronicled some of the achievements of famous women throughout history. As I was recently looking for the first appearance of Space Cabbie in "Mystery in Space" (yes, I have a weird obsession with the character) I ran across a similar backup feature called Giants of the Telescope. This one detailed the accomplishments of famous astronomers (though none were women but there were some female astronomers in Wonder Women of History). For those that know me, you know that I like science and so with near compulsiveness I set off to document these feature as much as possible. At the same time this gave me a sort of crash course in Mystery in Space, a series which has been sitting in my father's comic book collection but one which I never looked at. As opposed to the hard science of the famous astronomers instead there were series within the series featuring such names as the Knights of the Galaxy and Space Ranger in completely soft science settings. One of the longer running characters in the series was Adam Strange.
