Reading Room TWILIGHT ZONE "Mars: Dead or Alive"

50 years ago, when I saw this George Wilson cover on the comics rack of my local candy store...
...I just had to read it!
(BTW, the astronaut is Steve (Doc Savage) Holland!)
Written by Dick Wood and illustrated by Nevio Zaccara, the cover-feature (though not lead story) from Gold Key's Twilight Zone #17 (1966) offered a somewhat-plausable explanation (in those pre-Mars Rover days) as to why we hadn't seen signs of life on Mars.
Wood and Zaccara also collaborated on the never-reprinted Explorers in the Unknown strip that ran in Gold Key's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea comic.
