Number 1601: The stolen saucer

Tomorrow is July 8, the 67th anniversary of the famous headline from The Roswell (New Mexico) Record, claiming a flying saucer had been found on a local ranch. You may have heard the stories about it.

A few times in the past I have posted flying saucer stories in honor of that day, and this year we have a story of alien abduction, spaceflight to another planet to rescue the abductees, and a stolen flying saucer. Thankfully, flying the the saucer is “simplicity itself,” or our intrepid rescuers might still be stuck on Planet Hyston trying to figure out how to get home.

This story seems very like the sort that were normally delivered as text, to qualify for a postal discount.

Daniel, then you may be the only person I know who has actually read one of those post office-required text fillers in comic books.

I've read one or two, but that was enough.
