Reading Room ADVENTURE COMICS "These are the Star Men"

This week, a look at some never-reprinted stories from a surprising source...
...beginning with a cautionary tale about taking what's not yours!
The Bronze Age run of DC's Adventure Comics began by moving the long-running Legion of Super-Heroes feature to back-up Action Comics, while Action's back-up Supergirl, was moved to take over Adventure.
When Adventure's page count (along with all DC titles) went up as the line's price increased from 15 to 25 cents in 1971, the book featured a variety of back-ups including Zatanna, classic Supergirl reprints, and inventory sci-fi tales by noted artists.
Here's the first of those never-reprinted tales, from Adventure Comics #420 (1972), written and pencilled by Howard Purcell, an artist/writer whose work on over 600 stories and covers spanned the Golden and Silver Ages, and inked by George Roussos.
Be here tomorrow for another "lost" tale!
