Remember Whens-Day: Ralph Farnham, Space Pirate by Me

Now here's an obscurity that I did myself. Way back when, I was reading the "Famous First Edition" overside reprint of Flash Comics #1, and was struck by this spot illustration from the issue's text story (written by Gardner Fox, illustrated by Sheldon Mayer):

I was just so tickled that the villain didn't get a futuristic or menacing name...he's just "Ralph Farnham, Space Pirate." And then there's that expression on his face...the world-weary look of "Yeah, that's right, the name's Ralph Farnham. Wanna make something of it?"

Well, I did make something of it: My own contribution to my Golden Age sketchbook.
