Captain Future

  Captain Future, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board 
Captain Future is a science fictional hero pulp character – a space-traveling scientist and adventurer – originally published in  American pulp magazines between 1940 and 1951. The character, Captain Future,was created by Better Publications editor Mort Weisinger during the 1939 World Science Fiction Convention. 

Captain Future, AKA mild mannered Curtis Newton, is accompanied in the adventures by an android named Otho, an intelligent robot called Grag, and Simon Wright who is an artificial floating case with a transplanted human brain.. Whew! What a team!
