Reading Room: SPACE SQUADRON "Invaders"

Before Speed Carter, Atlas' resident space hero was Jet Dixon...
...leader of the circa-2000 Space Squadron in the 1951-52 series of the same name!
I'm still waiting on my flying car, much less interplanetary travel...
This premiere story from Space Squadron #1 was illustrated by George Tuska who later became the final artist on the original Buck Rogers comic strip (1959-67) and then assumed the art duties for almost a decade on Marvel's Invincible Iron Man!
The writer is unknown, but the scripting is clearly more simplistic and juvenile-oriented than the relatively more-sophisticated Speed Carter several years later.
