Reading Room: KENTON OF THE STAR PATROL "Alien Raiders"

When interstellar crime occurs, there's only one man to call... this exciting tale from Avon's Strange Planets #3 (1951) demonstrates!
This second Kenton story is Joe Orlando and Wally Wood's first work on the strip (Joe Kubert illustrated the character's first appearance).
Orlando and Wood would subsequently do all but the last Kenton tale, despite a very hectic schedule in 1951, including other Avon Comics work, illustrating the ongoing Captain Science strip plus miscellaneous short stories for Youthful Publishing, and numerous EC Comics assignments in various genres, before going exclusively to EC for a couple of years.
