Reading Room WEIRD MYSTERIES "Spirits from Outer Space!"

An astronaut returns from space and doesn't act like himself...
...yeah, it's a bit of a cliche, but this tale from Key's Weird Mysteries #1 (1952), has a surprise gimmick to defeat the baddies!
Illustrated by Walter Palais (brother of better-known Golden Age artist Rudy Palais) and Mike Esposito, this "possession by aliens" tale manages to present a variation of the old story with the fact that literally ANY pain causes the parasite to flee.

  1. A couple of years ago you had posted most of the installments of "Captain Johner and The Aliens", but you left out #'s 25, 26 and 28. Any plans to complete the series?

    1. Unfortunately, no.
      The series just wasn't popular enough to warrant continuing.
      As I put it in the last Johner post..."So, pending a massive outcry from a disappointed audience, this will be our final entry to the saga of Captain Johner and the Aliens..."
      Sadly, there was no response at all.
