Since the first reports started coming in of flying saucers in 1947, they were big news and moved into popular culture fast. Movies, comics, magazines were full of flying saucers. Jack Kirby did several flying saucer stories, including "Saucer Man" for Race For The Moon #3, 1958. In my opinion, the 5-pagers Kirby did with inker Al Williamson in Race For The Moon are some of the best he drew during that period. A couple of years later when Kirby was doing science fiction and fantasy for Stan Lee, a similar story would have probably involved an invasion. For the feverishly paranoid 1950s, "Saucer Man" seems pretty sensitive.
