Reading Room SPACE ADVENTURES "Magnet of Magneto"

Nope, it's not the mutant villain/anti-hero/hero of X-Men fame, but an entire planet...
...hell-bent on conquering the universe!

Written by Joe Gill and illustrated by Steve Ditko, this tale of menace and magnetism from Charlton's Space Adventures V2N5 (1969) is scientifically-inaccurate, but fun.
and isn't that what comics are all about?
You may recognize the splash panel as the cover for this issue...
Charlton had a tendency to re-use/recompose interior art for covers, especially with their anthologies.
Whether it was for budget or deadline reasons has been lost to the mists of history.
