Friday Fun REX DEXTER OF MARS "Exodus from Tarsus"

Rex and Cynde still haven't returned to Mars...
...and they're about to hit another detour...
This never-reprinted eight-page tale from Fox's Mystery Men Comics #13 (1940), is a classic example of "condensed" storytelling!
Things like the reveal of the fleet (not just a single vessel, but a fleet) of "mile-long spaceships" on page 2, or the destruction of planet Tarsus on page 5 takes less than half a page in each case!
In today's books they'd each be a double-page spread!
But in those days, it was "plot point covered, keep the story rolling"!
Wow!
