Reading Room CAPTAIN JOHNER AND THE ALIENS "Suspense in Space"

...as they face a life-or-death situation!
It's amazing how writers Eric Freiwald & Robert Schaefer and creator/artist Russ Manning manged to tell a complete (and exciting) story in just four pages, as they did with this tale from Gold Key's Magnus, Robot Fighter #4 (1963).
Today's comic creators with their bloated "epics" could take a lesson from them!

  1. Right on both counts. Short but excellent. I often re-read my Magnus which this was a second story and always get a thrill out of the last panel. SO well done.
