A sci-fi story by noted good-girl artist Matt Baker...
...without a single beautiful woman (not even a cavewoman), in one of his few assignments for Atlas (later Marvel) Comics!
When this story appeared in Tales to Astonish #2 (1959), Baker was near the end of his run working through Vince Colletta's studio, doing only penciling to increase his productivity.
Vince Colletta inked the pages, and it's possible that, seeing how much detail Colletta tended to leave out during inking, Baker did less-detailed pencils than normal.
The writer is unknown, but it's believed to be Editor Stan Lee.
