Reading Room: SPACE ACE "Nothing Weapon"

Buckle up for EXCITEMENT in the far-flung reaches of space, gang...
...the second Space Ace is back, and he's looking good!
Al Williamson assumes the penciling duties, showing off his superb design and anatomy skills.
The inking is by Williamson plus the legendary Fleagle Gang (Frank Frazetta, Angelo Torres, Roy Krenkel, George Woodbridge).
If that weren't enough, the script is by Gardner Fox, taking the concepts of "Space Ace 2.0" and making them a superb example of classic space opera.
It's hard to believe this story from Jet #3 (1951) hasn't been reprinted in one of the numerous compilations of Golden Age material that have popped up in the past few years.

BONUS: the original art for page one...
Is that magnificent, or what? ;-)
Thursday, the (choke) final Space Ace tale.
