Friday Fun REX DEXTER "To Mars...and Back Again!"

You may have noticed that the Friday Fun series features strips which have a distinctive "flavor"...
..usually attributable to a creative (writer, illustrator or writer-illustrator) who remains constant through the entire run!
Starting today, we're re-presenting another never-reprinted series with a unique style...Dick Briefer's Rex Dexter of Mars!
Remember the interplanetary rocket that took off during the New York World's Fair of 1939?
Me neither.
But it occurred, because in 2000, this happened...
Wow, that's a helluva lot for only six pages in the back of Fox's Mystery Men Comics #1 (1939)!
Today, it'd be a four-issue mini-series!
Writer-artist Dick Briefer ended up creating a rather kool sci-fi character who became one of the longer-lasting strips of the Fox Comics line, lasting the entire run of Mystery Men Comics as well as his own one-shot title, and as one of the features in Victor Fox's proposed newspaper strip booklet (predating Will Eisner's Spirit inserts by a month or so in 1940).
