Spaceman Jax Model Sheet
Spaceman Jax Model Sheet
This reproduction of the original Spaceman Jax model sheet is a limited edition giclée print and all are signed by designer Philip La Carta.
Spaceman Jax had a heart of gold and the intellect of a Ploridian Lunar Beast. He was brave, loyal and so blissfully unaware of his own ineptitude. We should all be so confident.
And all of that was communicated by Philip La Carta’s brilliant design of Spaceman Jax. La Carta designed many of our favorite characters of the period, such as Brigadier Buffalo and Manfred J. Platypus, P.I., but Spaceman Jax was up there with some of his best work.
Though La Carta retired long ago, he agreed to sign each print for us, saying “I never thought I’d be looking at these drawings some 50 years later.” We can’t stop looking at them.
Each print is hand numbered, one of only 1000 prints, and signed by the artist. As with all our products, this print comes with a certificate of authenticity.

It was created by Bill Pendergast and Leo Ulrich, and designed by Philip La Carta (who also designed Brigadier Buffalo and Manfred J. Platypus, P.I.). The show was the first big success for P.U.D.

Our favorite time of year has arrived – it’s finally Comic-Con time!
The Curio & Co. year basically revolves around these five days in San Diego: we’re either gearing up for Comic-Con or coming down from it.
During Comic-Con we connect with old friends and meet new friends. We get up close and personal with artists whose work we’ve admired from afar, and we celebrate each rarity we manage to hunt down. Comic-Con is like Thanksgiving, New Year’s and Valentine’s Day all rolled into one. Can you sense our goosebumps?
But of course, it’s not all about us. We’ll have a variety of treasures for you: pins, vintage posters and plenty of books. Plus, we’ll have all your favorite characters like Frank and His Friend, Spaceman Jax and Roger Believe.
Most importantly, however, we’ve poured through the archives to find you curios that you won’t find anywhere else! We won’t say more about these treasures yet – but you’ve got to see ‘em to believe ‘em! Come back for more information after the big reveal.
If you’ll be in San Diego for Comic-Con, drop by and say hello – we’d love to see you! We’ll be at booth o-2 in the Small Press section. We can’t wait to catch up!
