BOYS' LIFE  /  January 1968
"Our story continues..."
Story by Al Stenzel  /  Art by GRAY MORROW
BOYS' LIFE  /  February 1968
BOYS' LIFE  /  April 1968
BOYS' LIFE  /  May 1968
This is the point where I originally came in!
BOYS' LIFE  /  September 1968
There was no strip in the June 1968 issue, apparently by mistake!
This one ran, rather obviously, out-of-sequence. Fixed!

BOYS' LIFE  /  July 1968
Doesn't that last panel remind you of a scene from "2001"
(which came out about the same time as this issue)?
BOYS' LIFE  /  August 1968
BOYS' LIFE  /  September 1968  (see above)
BOYS' LIFE  /  October 1968
BOYS' LIFE  /  November 1968
BOYS' LIFE  /  December 1968

(Continued in 1969)

Some more "extras".  From the August, September & November '68 issues, respectively.

  1. Another example of how Al Stenzel had no problem changing gears when he wanted the story to go in a different direction. I'm pretty sure in the January and February '68 issues he believed they were on Earth. By April he'd changed his mind --- they're on Titan!
