Reading Room: AMAZING ADVENTURES "Space Pirates on Xarpot"

Space military/police organizations were ubiquitous in 1950s sci-fi...

...and this story was the second and last featuring the short-lived Perimeter Patrol.
Considering the two tales were done by the artists who also did SpaceBusters, we wonder if this was intended as a backup series for that title.
Illustrated by Bernie Krigstein, this never-reprinted story from Ziff-Davis' Amazing Adventures #6 (1952) is a classic example of pulp/comic space opera of the era with all the classic elements:
Scantly-clad women.
Square-jawed heroes.
Rockets & ray-guns.
And, instead of bug-eyed monsters...space pirates!
