Reading Room: SPEED CARTER: SPACEMAN "Mosquito Men & the Multiple Menace"

When you're summoned to a "secret experimental laboratory"...
...you just know there's gonna be trouble.
But in this case, it'll be triple trouble!
If you have an army of Speed Carters, and they're all captains, then who's in command?

This tale of mosquito men and mathematics from Speed Carter: SpaceMan #4 (1954) was written (as are all Speed Carter stories) by Hank Chapman and illustrated by Mike Sekowsky and Jack Abel.

BTW, though we didn't mention it in the previous Sekowsky-illustrated story, Mike apparently redesigned everything including uniforms, weapons, and equipment.
You'll see this continue in all the remaining issues as each succeeding artist does their own rendition of the universe of 2075 instead of following the previous artist's designs.
