Reading Room KIDNAPPED BY A SPACE SHIP "Part 7 - A Mountain Explodes!"

Trapped on an alien world, a group of humans and their alien allies fight to survive...
...fighting savages and the clock as a rogue planet hurtles towards them!
Ah, the classic Daffy Duck "Scarlet Pumpernickel" trope; when you're stuck for a climax to your story, unleash a volcano, even if it's totally-unrelated to anything else in the story!
This tale from Treasure Chest V14N17 (1959) is the penultimate chapter in the serialized storyline, so writer Frances Crandall and artist Fran Matera decided to "go for broke"!
