Captain's Library: SPACE PATROL "Space Pirates"

Continuing the short-lived cosmic comic adventures of Buzz Corry...
...with the final tale from Ziff-Davis' Space Patrol #1 (1952)!
Though the art is clearly Bernie Krigstein, there's debate as to whether the writer is Paul S Newman or Phillip Evans.

One of the cool aspects of these comic book versions of 1950s radio/tv series is that they weren't limited by budget restrictions as the actual shows were.
Whatever the author's mind could conceive, the illustrators could deliver without having to worry about plywood sets or props made out of kitchen utensils!

There's more Space Patrol excitement to come as we present every tale from its' two-issue run!
Watch for it!
