We continue our Strange Robot Adventures theme week with yet another continuing character who appeared in the early issues of Strange Adventures, Captain Comet. Created by John Broome using a pen-name, and drawn by Murphy Anderson and Joe Giella, Captain Comet is a mutant with the body of a man 100,000 years in the future. He would have to be extra sharp to pick up all of the incredible stuff he has to figure out in this story, [SPOILER ALERT] especially when the incredible stuff turn out to be some dirty doin's by a scientist’s free-thinking robots. Because of the red herring of the so-called time capsule from 1,000,000 B.C. we don’t get to see the robots until page 4.[END OF SPOILER]
It is of its era...I like the panel on page 6 where Captain Comet clobbers the robot, knocking out some springs and at least one vacuum tube. From Strange Adventures #29 (1953):
