...since the comic presented the background so well, I'll just sit back and enjoy the conclusion along with you...
(Not that "again" was very long, since next issue would be the strip's final appearance!)
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 #14 (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).
