Reading Room SPACE SQUADRON "Blast Revere: Solo to the Moon!"

Set in the then-distant year 2000, Space Squadron also had an ongoing strip set in the "past"...
...1960 (which was still "the future" in 1951)!
As shown in many military-themed strips, most overly-cautious senior officers were brain-dead maniacs when they were just cadets.
This never-reprinted tale from Atlas' Space Squadron #2 (1951) just transposed it to the near future!
Neither the writer nor artist are known.
Blast Revere ran in all six issues of Space Squadron. and it's one-issue "sequel", Space Worlds.
When Speed Carter: SpaceMan came along a couple of years later, series writer/co-creator Hank Chapman ignored everything done in Space Squadron, producing stories that often contradicted "future history" established in the earlier series.
