Reading Room: SPEED CARTER: SPACEMAN "Slaughter in Space"

We meet a new alien race, the Vegans...
...who, it turns out, are no more trustworthy than most other alien species.
(We humans are scrupulously honest, of course!)
Don't ya just love a happy ending?
What I want to know is why Speed is suddenly wearing shorts!
Thankfully, it's the only story in the series where he does so.
This story from Speed Carter: SpaceMan #5 (1954) was scripted (as were all Speed Carter tales) by Hank Chapman!
Illustrator George Tuska 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!
