Reading Room UNEARTHLY SPECTACULARS "Saucerer"

Let's go from the past couple of fairly serious tales about alien invaders...
..to this camp-fest from the Swinging '60s!
BTW, could you guess that the creators were both middle-aged guys whose exposure to rock and roll was through their kids (or even grand-kids)?
Yep!
Written by long-time sci-fi and comics author Otto Binder (born 1911), and illustrated by Golden and Silver Age artist Carl Pfeufer (born 1910), this never-reprinted two-pager appeared in the back of Harvey's Unearthly Spectaculars #3 (1967).
In point of fact, most Silver Age creators were 40 or over!
In comparison, today's comic creators are mostly in their 20s and early 30s...and judging from their output, I'm wondering if that's such a good thing...
