Very interesting.

Apparently there were 4 issues of this comic book. Two of the covers (from #1 and #4 are shown below). It doesn't look like GHS contributed to #4 and I find no info on who wrote for #2 and #3.

Copies of #1 and #4 are available on Amazon.

Ah, I see I wasn't following the comicbookdb fully - here is the full listing for 'Open Space':

Four issues and an 'issue 0'. But still, none of them are the cover I have.

Now here's an odd item. I have a graphic novel that I bought off of ebay ~10 years ago. The title is 'Open Space' and GHS was the author of one of the stories. And I'm pretty sure (haven't looked at it in a few years - gotta dig it up) that it listed no publisher or publication date (it's on my list, with no information). I hadn't tried looking for anything about it in a long time, so a quick google and wa la, there is a comic book database (I should have known) with this:

So here's the interesting part. Going to the Open Space #1 entry there (the only one), goes to the data on the book... but I'm pretty sure that's not the cover I have, and the cover shown there clearly shows the date and publisher (Marvel). I know nothing about comic publishing - could I have a privately published copy - perhaps something that was later bought and published my Marvel?


Open Space Volume 1 No 1

Heroes by G. Harry Stine
The story reveals how a desperate man inadvertently becomes a savior of mankind.
