The Catacombs Presents: "The Invaders" (Standard; 1952)

Here’s a slightly seasonal classic to warm you up for better scares tonight! Aliens from Mercury (of all places) attempt to take over an Earth colonized planet named Pax in "The Invaders" a fun sci-fi thriller from Fantastic Worlds #5 (Sept.1952); originally published by Standard and illustrated by the great Alex Toth & Mike Peppe. This was a very short run title for Standard lasting a mere three issues, but this one  issue alone featured some real talent within its pages. In addition to Toth, John Celardo, George Roussos, Jerome Bixby and Murphy Anderson contributed work. Happy Halloween! The Catacombs acknowledges "Comic Book Plus" as the source of this classic comic story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belongs to the original publishers and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
