Space Rovers. In the year 1940 18 year old Jane Martin is the daughter of the scientist who invents the first ship capable of inter planetary travel. 20 year old Ted Hunt is Jane's childhood friend. They take the ship into space to avoid being captured by gangsters. Together, they have adventures around the solar system, fighting human-sacrificing brutes and dinosaur-like creatures on Mercury, fixing the royal succession on Mars, and so on. Jane is as resolute and as capable as Ted, and as likely to shoot enemies with a hand-blaster as he is. They appear in stories with titles like “The Robot Masters of Venus,” “The Lost Valley of Mars,” and “The Golden Victims of Orro.”
