Number 1403: Other Earths
Murphy Anderson drew this story for Strange Adventures #10 (1951), and the writing is credited on the splash page to Manly Wade Wellman. Wellman wrote science fiction and fantasy for several decades, and I have read many of his stories and books. I don’t recall any of his prose fiction being as oddball as this comic book story, and I attribute that to editor Julius Schwartz handing him a plot to work from, and having Wellman do his best to make sense of it.
