Reading Room: ATOM-AGE COMBAT "The Hungry Moss"

A story from the 1950s that might've inspired the cult flick The Green Slime!
This tale from the fifth (and final) issue of this 1952-53 comic book is one of only three stories in the entire series with actual sci-fi or alien elements!
Most of the tales were of the World War III / Atomic War type showing a long-feared "US vs the Russian and/or Chinese Commies" war using advanced technology and limited nuclear weaponry.

While the writer is unknown, the art is by longtime war comics artist Dick Ayers, best-known for Sgt Fury and His Howling Commandos

We're currently presenting another sci-fi story from Atom-Age Combat at our brother blog War: Past, Present & Future™!
