Reading Room WORLD OF SUSPENSE "Men in Glass"

The last cover-featured story is about a recent immigrant to our shores...
...and how his actions had consequences for the United States, and the entire Earth!
The Star Spangled Banner has always been a difficult tune to sing, but who knew it could be used as a weapon?
Illustrated by Don Heck, this never-reprinted tale from Atlas' World of Suspense #5 (1956) takes the "high note can shatter glass" trope to a whole new level.
OTOH, if the aliens' helmets had been made of plastic or "transparent aluminium" or some such instead of glass, we'd all be chanting "Hail Zarki!"
Though this is the last tale to have a spot on the cover, there's several more to come, so be back tomorrow for more sci-fi comics unseen for over 60 years!
