Monday (late) Madness FANTASTIC COMICS "Space Smith and the Crustaceans of Ganymede"

Since Monday was Memorial Day, we moved Space Smith to Tuesday...
...as another artist fills-in for Fletcher Hanks, bringing a Buck Rogers-esque feel to the strip!
While the scripting on this story From Fox's Fantastic Comics #7 (1940) has that Fletcher Hanks "feel", the art, definitely, is not Hanks!
It looks like the artist is trying for the same look as Dick Calkins' original Buck Rogers newspaper strip, which was incredibly-popular at the time!

The next issue would feature a totally-Fletcher Hanks tale....for the last time!
