Reading Room: REX DEXTER OF MARS "To Mars and Back"

Remember the interplanetary rocket that took off during the World's Fair of 1939?
No?
Me neither.
But it occurred, because in 2000, this happened...
Wow, that's a helluva lot for only six pages in the back of Fox's Mystery Men Comics #1 (1939)!
Today, it'd be a four-issue mini-series!
Writer-artist Dick Briefer ended up creating a rather kool sci-fi character who became one of the longer-lasting strips of the Fox Comics line, lasting the entire run of Mystery Men Comics as well as his own one-shot title, and as one of the features in Victor Fox's proposed newspaper strip booklet (predating Will Eisner's Spirit inserts by a month or so in 1940).
We'll be running all of Rex's exploits over the next few months, so watch this blog...
