Reading Room MANHUNTER 2070 "Planet of Death" Conclusion

...commissioned to bring in a trio of space pirates, bounty hunter Starker tracked them to Pheidos, a world where practically everything, plant or animal, is trying to eat everything else, making it the perfect hideout world!
With one of the criminals devoured by carnivorous insects, Starker continues his assignment...
But before that, we have another brief interlude as Starker ends up on a reality TV show!
Yeah, I know this series was written in 1970.
Maybe Mike Sekowsky was more prescient than we thought...
Written and pencilled by Mike Sekowsky, inked by Vince Colletta, this never-reprinted tale from DC's Showcase V1#91 (1970) proves the adage that "space opera" is "horse opera" with blasters instead of six-shooters.
