Combine When Worlds Collide, Damon Runyon's Broadway tales, Flash Gordon, and Front Page...
...and you get this really-weird one-shot tale!
So, we got...Armageddon, gangsters, intrepid spacemen (and women) and spaceships, newspaper reporters, and comedy relief.
Did I miss anything?
This never-reprinted tale from Nedor's Black Terror Comics #23 (1948) seems like part of an ongoing series, but I can't find any other stories featuring the lead characters!
Illustrator (and possible writer) Stan Asch was one of the steadily-working artists who were the backbone of the comics industry in the Golden Age.
With over 300 stories and covers to his credit, he co-created Johnny Thunder and Dr Mid-Nite for DC Comics, and later assisted both Milton Caniff (on Terry and the Pirates) and Al Capp (on Lil' Abner).
Was this a try-out for an ongoing strip that didn't sell?
We'll never know...
