Space Falcon and the Pirates of the Stratosphere
Here is the third story from the one-shot Captain Rocket, a Canadian comic book from 1951.
It's well-illustrated, but the silly costumes, as usual, crack me up. I especially like the open-shirted look of Tubby. Say, this isn't Tubby Tompkins of Little Lulu fame grown up, is it?
Futuristic fashions notwithstanding this has robots, and I love a story with robots.
The first two stories from this science fiction comic can be found in Pappy's #517 and Pappy's #533.
