I often wonder why some Mexican lobby cards, instead of showing a scene from the movie, use a comic illustration instead. This one for First Spaceship on Venus is a futuristic dreamscape with mesmerizing alien colors and rocketships blazing across the void. I'm still on the fence deciding if the inset "scene" illustration detracts from the lobby's overall effect. Perhaps stills from the movie weren't available for inclusion on the card. Or perhaps using a comic book panel-styled scene was thought to be more dramatic. (Which wouldn't say much for the movie, then, if that were the case.)
