Reading Room MANHUNTER 2070 "Space Duel"

Think "reality TV" is a recent phenomenon?
In 1970, a visionary writer/artist/editor saw it happening, but a century later (which is only 55 years for us)!
Sly Ben, sadly, didn't appear again.
Too bad as he would've added a bit of comic relief to a rather grim series.
This "tag", written and penciled by Mike Sekowsky and inked by Vince Colletta, appeared in the back of DC's Showcase V1N91(1970).
Like the short that appeared at the end of the previous issue, it didn't "tease" what would be in the next issue, but served to expand the world of 2070 for the readers, establishing story elements that Sekowsky could come back to in future tales.
In fact, there was a "teaser" at the end of the book, and you'll see it tomorrow...
