Number 2378: Strange neighbors, indeed...
To add to the obvious, one of the alien characters is called Mr Neeg.
The message of this short 4-pager is diluted. A story about a mob pushing out the otherworldly aliens who only want to be good neighbors, having the unwanted green people as tokens who would have brought great things for the white citizens but being denied by a mob, is weak and an artifact of its time.
Despite what I consider the tale’s failings it is a curiosity of its era, and well drawn by John Forte. No writer is credited.
