Captain's Library: MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. "Brain Drain Affair" Conclusion

...actually, I'll let the ACT II splash page synopsis of this story from Man from U.N.C.L.E. #14 (1967) tell the tale...
Story probably by Dick Wood (who wrote most of the Man from U.N.C.L.E. comics), pencils definitely by Mike Sekowsky, inks probably by Mike Peppe.

As you can see, things have taken a decidedly campy turn since issue #1.
The tv show itself had gone camp due to the astounding success of the Batman tv series and most other fantasy/sci-fi shows also went "over-the-top", in some cases (the Irwin Allen shows Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and Lost in Space in particular), becoming almost parodies of themselves.
You'll see an example of this...tomorrow!
