Number 2059: Boy Commando rides a flying saucer
And not just flying saucers; the writer figured he might as well throw in Martians stealing Earth’s water,* giant robots, and a pill-sized atom bomb to end the story. Oh, and Commando Brooklyn rides a flying saucer. Not ride in a flying saucer, mind you. It was while reading that part of the story that I came to expect the last panel would be Brooklyn waking up from a dream caused by a heavy meal before bedtime. It may look like a dream, but it’s not.
*Those darn aliens are still after our water! This is from a Cheerios giveaway Justice League comic published this year:
Grand Comics Database credits Curt Swan and John Fischetti with the artwork, but no dreamer is listed as author.
In 1947 the Boy Commandos went to the moon! Just click on the thumbnail.
