Science Fiction/Double Feature Presents: "Space Pirates of Xarpot" (Ziff-Davis;1952)

They do say that all good things eventually come to an end, and that certainly applies today as the Catacombs presents the opening tale from the final issue of Ziff-Davis cool late golden age-early silver age sci-fi series, Amazing Adventures #6 (Fall 1952). Four terrific stories remain, plus a few filler pieces, and that's all she wrote.

Thanks for stopping by for a part of your weekend over the last few months and now, since daylight savings time is burning, let's get down to business. "Space Pirates of Xarpot" is illustrated by EC great, Bernard Krigstein. Unfortunately the cover artist is unidentified in the GCD, but the cover is pretty awesome anyway, and it's included as this weeks bonus feature. This is one of the three issues of this series that I actually own, so without further ado - "enjoy"!
