Reading Room: RACE FOR THE MOON "The Face on Mars"

Perhaps the most famous story from Race for the Moon...
From Race for the Moon #2. Art by Jack Kirby and Al Williamson.
Why is it so famous?
When the Viking satellite reached Mars in 1976, it took this photo...
Remember, this was the era of Chariots of the Gods?, and to many, this was confirmation that aliens had either come thru the Solar System and stopped off not only on Earth, but Mars, as well, or were from Mars initially!
And, there were those who remembered this little comic tale from their childhood.
The truth was a bit more mundane. Click HERE for NASA's explanation.
There are those who say it's a cover-up, that there is life on Mars, and that "the face" is a relic of their existence.
Judge for yourself.
