Reading Room VENUS COMICS "Plot!"

This week we're looking at the Atlas Comics title Venus...
...but not at the title character's tales!
As you might have guessed, we're re-presenting the never-reprinted back-up stories!
This one, from Venus #11 (1950), is illustrated by Russ Heath.
The writer is unknown.
Marvel reprinted Venus #1-9 in a Marvel Masterworks edition in 2011, but hasn't touched the later issues which had a horror/sci-fi bent, rather than the romantic comedy of the earlier issues.
(#9 was beginning the transformation of the title)
And no further Venus reprints are planned, so we'll be running some more back-up tales by some surprising talents for the rest of the week.
