Reading Room: ATTACK ON PLANET MARS "Attack on Mars"

It's time for the fateful finale...
Art by Gene Fawcette
In the year 2430, Tarrano, an Earthman, has seized control of both the planet Venus and its outpost on Earth, Venia.
To that outpost, the tyrant has kidnapped Elza and Georg, children of the recently-murdered scientist, Dr Brende, along with reporter Jac Hallen.
While Tarrano plots his upcoming conquest of Earth and Mars, Georg and the captive Venusian princess Maida escape, and then aid Earth's government in planning a pre-emptive attack on Venia.
Meanwhile, back with the captive Jac and Elza...
Based on the novel Tarrano the Conqueror by Ray Cummings, this final chapter of the 1951 comic adaptation was penciled by Carmine Infantino and inked by Vince Alascia.
The writer of the adaptation is unknown.
You can read the original novel on-line HERE (it's not very long) and compare it with the comic!
