What if everything you knew about outer space was wrong?
Perhaps this never-reprinted tale from Eerie Publications' Strange Galaxy #V1N8 (1971) has the answer!
Cue Twilight Zone theme music...
Judging from the script and art (including some of the obviously-altered word balloons) this was a 1950s story reprinted with a different title and minor rewriting.
Unfortunately, there are no credits for the story in Strange Galaxy, and even the definitive reference work about Eerie Publications, Weird World of Eerie Publications, has no listing for it!
