Reading Room CRUSADER FROM MARS COMICS "Prison Planet"

One of the oldest plots in fiction is "hero fakes going bad"...
...so why not try to "freshen it" by transposing the concept to outer space?
Both the writer and artist(s) for this one-off tale from the back of Ziff-Davis' Crusader from Mars #2 (1952) are unknown.
The Grand Comics Database lists Marvin Stein, but if it is Stein, he had a lot of layout assistance from his Simon & Kirby studiomates, including Joe Simon and Jack Kirby!
Neither Jon Barrett nor this version of Space Police ever re-appeared.
