OK, since the comic itself synopsised the plot, let's just continue...
It's nice to see a situation where we out-gun aliens.
Usually, aliens have superior weaponry/tech and we have to be sneaky to triumph over them...You'll see the conclusion 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.
This never-reprinted tale from VttBotS #13 (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).
