Reading Room CAPTAIN QUICK & THE SPACE SCOUTS "Hermits of Callisto"

The Space Scouts and their mentor finally leave Mars...
...only to find a mystery on a moon of Jupiter!
A poignant (and ironic) end to a short-lived series nobody remembers!
Though the art for this never-reprinted tale from Prize Comics' Tom Corbett: Space Cadet V2#3 (1955) is credited solely to Marvin Stein at the Grand Comics Database, the layout appears to be by Jack Kirby, which would make sense since Simon & Kirby's studio was packaging the book for Prize.
Beyond being set in the near future, there was no connection to Tom Corbett.
