Reading Room: COMMANDER BATTLE AND THE ATOMIC SUB "Giants from the Depths"

...and completed their shake-down cruise, the aptly-named Commander Battle and his Atomic Sub are ready for action!
The pseudo 3-D created by Craft-Tint tones used in the first issue was eliminated for #2 of ACG's Commander Battle and the Atomic Sub (1954), although it looks like the pages were initially-conceived to utilize the Craft-Tint effects to create depth.
Without it, the giants aren't quite as imposing as they would have been, and panels like the last one on Page 7 (Battle bailing out of the airplane) just look silly.
Script by Richard Hughes, the Stan Lee of ACG who wrote practically everything at the company during his tenure as editor/writer!
Pencils by Sheldon Moldoff, inks by Al Camy, Odgen Whitney and others.
