Some "people" are just too smart for their own good...
...as this never-reprinted short story proves!
Carl Sagan postulated in his novel, Contact, that aliens could receive our radio and tv broadcasts which were travelling at light-speed from Earth since the 1920s, literally broadcasting our presence to the rest of the universe.
Without context, what would they make of those images...and how might they make use of them?
This story from DC's Adventure Comics #425 (1972-73), illustrated by Frank Redondo, offers one outcome.
BTW, the writer is unknown.
Another "lost" tale tomorrow...
