Reading Room ROCKET TO THE MOON Part 2

...well, now you know the source material for the comic!
(And isn't that a great Frank Frazetta cover?)
Brilliant young scientist Ted Dustin sends an unmanned test rocket to the Moon, and the inhabitants of the satellite, believing it to be an attack, respond with missiles of their own.
Despite being able to make video contact with the Moon people, the language barrier proves insurmountable and the bombardment of Earth continues.
In desperation, Dustin launches himself in an experimental rocket to the Moon...
Note: May be NSFW due to racial stereotypes common to eras of both the original novel and the comic.
What does Ted encounter?
Be here tomorrow and find out!
This 1951 one-shot comic from Avon Comics was scripted by Walter (The Shadow) Gibson and illustrated by Joe Orlando and Wally Wood.
