Friday Fun REX DEXTER "SpaceShip of the Living Dead"

Our final Rex Dexter adventure truly goes where no space hero has gone before...
...battling interplanetary zombies!
This terrifying tale is from Fox's Mystery Men Comics #21 (1941), several issues before Rex's final tale in #24, which we presented HERE!
We're running it out-of-sequence because we thought it would make an appropriate story just before Halloween!
At any rate, this concludes Rex's saga on this blog, so be here next Friday, when we begin re-presenting another timelost series with a unique twist!

Reading Room WAR OF THE WORLDS "Part II: the Conquest of Earth"

Yeah, we could've called this chapter...
...but then HG Wells' ghost would've b1tch-slapped us!
(and rightly so!)
...projectiles from Mars have landed on Earth in 1898, unleashing aliens with heat-rays destroying everything in range.
Unfortunately, the aliens are now mobile...
To Be Continued...
TUESDAY!
Adapted by Chris Claremont, penciled by Yong Montano, and inked by Dino Castrillo, it's a pretty straighforward visualization of the original novel, without updating to the present, as most adaptations of the tome have done.

Reading Room WAR OF THE WORLDS "Coming of the Martians"

In October 1976, Marvel's sequel series to HG Wells' War of the Worlds had just been cancelled...
...and the publisher released this adaptation of the original novel just in time for Halloween!
To Be Continued...
THURSDAY!
Adapted by Chris Claremont, penciled by Yong Montano, and inked by Dino Castrillo, it's a pretty clean adaptation of the original novel, which was the basis for Marvel's just-canceled KillRaven: Warrior of the Worlds!
Note: it's not meant as a tie-in to the series, because Dave Cockrum, who was aiding Art Director John Romita as his Associate while also drawing X-Men, deliberately designed the tripods and Martians to look different from the ones in KillRaven!
