Reading Room: SPEED CARTER: SPACEMAN "Famous Explorers: Saturn"

In the future world of Speed Carter, women are not always treated as equals...
...but, when push comes to shove, the're as brave and as any men when facing the dangers of deep space exploration!
This story of a future fighting feminist from Speed Carter: SpaceMan #6 (1953) is written (like all the Speed Carter-related tales) by Hank Chapman, and illustrated by Bill Benulis, an artist who entered the comics field in 1949 and stayed only four years in the business.
He became a postman when the comics industry almost collapsed due to the "Seduction of the Innocent" witchhunt (that claimed comics caused juvenile delinquency) swept the country.
But, because he was so prolific, "new" material by him kept appearing in comics until 1957!
