Reading Room SENSATION MYSTERY "Vengeance of the Invisible Men"

Here's a kool, never-reprinted, 1950s sci-fi tale...
...using a combination of different genre cliches!
Illustrated by the legendary Murphy Anderson, this story from DC's Sensation Mystery #110 (1952) combines the following cliches:
Glasses that enable somone to see things nobody else can see!
Creatures from the center of the Earth rising up to attack up!
A heroic human in alien/creature form stopping the enemy from destroying/enslaving humanity!
All of which leads me to believe the unknown writer of this tale is Gardner Fox, who was also working for DC as well as being well-versed in such concepts because he was both an established pulp and paperback novelist and an avid sci-fi fan!
