Reading Room: SPEED CARTER: SPACEMAN "Thing in Outer Space"

It's October, and we're doing Halloween-themed posts on all our blogs...
...but, every day is Halloween in outer space!
Oh, Speed, you're such a kidder!
This story from Speed Carter: SpaceMan #6 (1954) was scripted (as were all Speed Carter tales) by Hank Chapman, and illustrated by Bob Forgione.
You'll note that Forgione uses original artist Joe Maneely's designs for the Speed Carter universe, which previous artists Mike Sekowsky (issue #4) and George Tuska (issue #5) ignored in their issues.
In fact, Forgione tries to match Maneely's rendering style...and does a fair job of it.
It's a shame this was Speed's final issue.
