Reading Room: EXPLORERS IN THE UNKNOWN "Prisoners of the 'Jelly' Planet"

These are the voyages of the Hunter I, it's ongoing mission... fill four pages per issue of Gold Key's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
You'll see the continuation tomorrow, unlike the original readers of this story in 1968 who had to wait three months for the next four-page chapter (VttBotS was a quarterly book)!
The Hunter I crew had adventures set in the near-future of the late 1990s-early 2000s, much like then-current films like Green Slime, Wild Wild Planet, and Battle in Outer Space.
With only four pages per issue, there was little character development (or even names) for the crew, but lots of action!
This tale from VttBotS #12 (1968) was written by Dick Wood (who wrote the entire series) and illustrated by Nevio Zaccara (who remained the strip's artist until the final chapter).
