The Zodiac Thriller!
Above is an exceedingly cool Gold Key cover by George Wilson for a one-shot comic featuring the Gerry Anderson puppet adventure Fireball XL5. This cool 60's show is available again for relatively small money and I snapped up a copy which arrived on my doorstep yesterday.
In an effort to get fired up for watching this cool black and white classic space adventure series, I found this online presentation of the Gold Key comic at "The Secret Sanctum of Captain Video" (run by friend of the Dojo Britt Reid) by writer Paul S. Newman and artist Ray Bailey. One source identifies the artist though as Mel Crawford -- I can't tell. Give it a look. There's a ton of neat facts and even a glimpse of the vintage show itself.
