Reading Room: SPACE ADVENTURES "Long Patrol"

Here's a never-reprinted Silver Age tale...
...that has a Golden Age "look" and "feel" to it!
Written by Joe Gill, penciled by Charles Nicholas, and inked by Vince Colletta, this story from Charlton's Space Adventures V2N6 (1969) feels like it's been edited down from a longer version.
Things happen almost arbitrarily, like the astronauts' home base knowing theyve been mind-controlled by aliens, or the crewmen being deliberately-incapacitated by equipment on board we (and proabably they) knew nothing about!
It's an interesting, but unsatisfying, tale...a rarity from Charlton.
