Reading Room KEN BRADY: ROCKET PILOT "Boy Who Wasn't There"

Here's a never-reprinted tale of high adventure in the 21st Century...
...from the co-creator of Superman and the definitive artist of Dracula!
The second, and last, Ken Brady: Rocket Pilot tale from Lars of Mars #11 (1951), the second, and last, issue of the title.
This tale from Ziff-Davis' Lars of Mars #11 (1951) was written by Jerry Siegel and illustrated by Gene Colan.
It's both the character's second and last appearance and the second and last issue of the comic!
The "Police in Space" genre was incredibly-popular during the early 1950s with numerous tv shows and comic books dedicated to military and para-military organizations defending us from alien menaces!
While the series isn't anything particularly innovative, it's a classic example of 1950s-style sci-fi.
And Gene, who was doing a little of everything from horror to romance to Westerns, showed his versatility with this too-brief run.
