Captain's Library: TOM CORBETT : SPACE CADET "Spaceship of Doom"

We're introducing the only major 1950s space hero we haven't covered...
...with his first appearance in his second comic series!
So, let's join the crew of the Space Academy ship Polaris...
Besides being the longest-running tv/radio show of the genre, Tom Corbett had the longest run of any of the comics adaptations...fifteen issues with two different publishers!
The second series was published by Prize Comics and packaged (as were a number of Prize titles of the period) by the Simon & Kirby studio.
The primary artist was Mort Meskin, but there are apparently other artists doing layouts and inking including Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko.
This tale from Prize Comics' V2N1 (1955) was penciled by Meskin and inked by several different artists.
