Reading Room CAPTAIN JOHNER AND THE ALIENS "Fear of the Unknown"

...we discover Earthmen are as frightened of the Aliens as they were when Earthmen landed on their world!
First, let me apologize for not posting a Captain Johner & the Aliens tale last week.
Monday was the 4th of July, so we were going to post CJatA on Tuesday, but the passing of actress Noel Neill preempted it, and, at that point, with an-already scheduled Flash Gordon for Wednesday, we thought it best just to bump the strip a week.
Today's tale from Gold Key's Magnus, Robot Fighter #10 (1965) continues the established pattern of xenophobia that both species apparently share.
It was also the final story to be reprinted in Gold Key's 1960s one-shot reprint anthology of the Aliens tales, leaving the audience for that book with a semi-cliffhanger.
Unlike them, we'll continue next week...
