Daytime Heroes: Space Angel (1962)

Cambria Studios, home to the infamous Synchro-Vox method, only produced a small handful of series, which have been cult favorites for one reason or another.

While Clutch Cargo is the most infamous of the lot, Cambria called on veteran comics artist Alex Toth, 4 years before he went to work for Hanna-Barbera, to design Space Angel, a daily 5:00 serial that was in production for just two years, but would remain in syndication until at least the early 70's.

I previously discussed this series whilst reviewing a DVD release of the show over at The Land of Whatever several months back, but now it's time to take another look. This time, with the episode, "The Ghost & the Crystal Mace":

Synchro-Vox now seems to be the property of Conan O'Brien, who must be a fan.

Rating: C-.
