Friday Fun JUMPIN' JUPITER "In Space No One Can Hear You Laugh"

If you thought Jumpin' Jupiter's first story was weird...
..his third appearance from Weird Tales of the Future #4 (1953) is gonna make you plotz!
Whether it's his ongoing SpaceHawk strip or any of the numerous one-shot tales he did, Wolverton's Golden Age output was always instantly-recognizable!
This humor strip ran in #2 thru #5 of Key Publications' Weird Tales of the Future, along with several sci-fi/horror stories also written and illustrated by the amazing Basil!

Reading Room ROCKET SHIP X "Ivy Invasion"

Here's a never-reprinted tale from one of the rarest anthology titles of all...
...Fox's Rocket Ship X (1951)!
(not to be confused with the movie RocketShip X-M, which came out the year before...)
Both writer and artist(s) of this extremely-weird tale are unknown.
Fox, unlike most comics publishers in the 1940s-50s, didn't go whole-hog with sci-fi.
Though they did occasional sci-fi stories that appeared in their other adventure and action anthologies, Rocket Ship X (1951) was their lone sci fi-only anthology, and was just a one-shot.
