Wednesday Worlds of Wonder CARSON OF VENUS "Terror from the Sky!"

...but if there's anything a lifetime of reading/watching science fiction has taught me, it's that things are not as they seem...
Remember, while the "you're not really dead because your alien biology is different from mine" concept is a cliche these days, the novel Pirates of Venus was written in 1932, and was a relatively new idea back then.
(One of the things that drove me nuts about reviews of the movie John Carter was the complaint it was "so derivative" of everything from Flash Gordon to Superman to Star Wars...when the 1911 story Princess of Mars was the inspiration for the aspects of those properties that people were complaining John Carter copied!)
Len Wein and Mike Kaluta keep the story racing along in this chapter from DC's Korak Son of Tarzan #50 (1973).
