Monday Madness FANTASTIC COMICS "Space Smith and the Mummified Meteor Vacuumites"

We promised you "madness"...
...and we certainly deliver it in this installment of Space Smith from Fox's Fantastic Comics #6 (1940)!
Next week will be an interesting contrast as another artist fills in for Fletcher Hanks...with decidedly-mixed results!

Reading Room ALIEN WORLDS "G•A•M•E•W•A•R•S"

It's said you can tell a comic story is well-crafted...
...if it makes sense without captions and dialogue!
I'd say this never-reprinted tale from Pacific's Alien Worlds #5 (1983) fulfills that criteria, eh?

Reading Room OUT OF THIS WORLD "Imagination"

What is more powerful than a little kid's...
...where anything and everything can happen?
Written by Joe Gill and illustrated by Steve Ditko, this tale from Charlton's Out of This World #8 (1958) is simple. but hangs together beautifully.

Friday Fun REX DEXTER "Three Suns of Doom"

...he seems to have somehow detoured into interstellar space!
You have to admire the sheer imagination Dick Briefer packed into tales like this one from Fox's Mystery Men Comics #5 (1939).
There's enough here for at least a book-length story in today's "decompressed" titles...if not a two-parter!
And considering what movie special effects tech was like in 1939, the only way you'd see creatures like those monsters on page 14 back then was in newspaper comic strips, pulp magazines, or comic books!
Amazing stuff!

Reading Room RAVENS AND RAINBOWS "Explored"

Jeffrey Catherine Jones was an amazing artistic talent who left our moral coil far too soon...
...but while Jeff was here, we got to enjoy some fascinating work, like this tale!
This story appeared (with color by the amazing Steve Oliff) in Pacific Comics' one-shot Ravens and Rainbows (1983), which consisted entirely of Jones' work which had previously appeared in b/w!
Problem is, I can't figure out where it first appeared!
Anybody know?
