Wednesday Worlds of Wonder / CoronaVirus Comics SPACE ADVENTURES "Tale About Time: The Quest Begins"

Remember the phrase "Everything you think you know is wrong!"...
...because this sequel to the three-parter we just ran HEREHERE, and HERE will redefine the concept!
The questions continue to pile up, and one of the most famous artists of the Silver Age takes over the Wednesday!
(Not that Jim Aparo was any slouch, but this guy is known even outside comics!)
This sequel to the tale from Space Adventures #60 (1967) was by the first story's scripter, Denny O'Neil using his "Sergius O'Shaughnessy" pseudonom, and appeared almost a year later in Space Adventures #2 (1968).
No, that's not a typo.
This is "Volume 2" of Space Adventures, which had been cancelled the year before with #60!
However, while this is Vol 2, #2, it's the first issue of the revival since there was no Vol 2 #1!
Geez, the time travel paradoxes in this story are easier to explain than comic book numbering!
BTW, you may have noticed that the primary plot from the first tale...
...biological warfare, has been left by the wayside, in order to simplify the synopsis!
(Remember, there's a year-long gap between the original issues in 1967-68, not just a couple of weeks)
But you and we know that plot element's there, and it's the subtext for the remainder of this saga!
