Captain Marvel Jr #76 (The Terror in Treetop Town) Aug. 1949

The Terror in Treetop Town

This is one of the fairly rare "lost civilizations" stories in the CMJ corpus.The tree top townspeople are similarly clothed (colonial attire) as the ones in CMJ #60 (April 1948) "The Legend Beyond the Mist." Otto Binder is credited (GCD) with writing this tale. He may have give a "tip of the hat" to fellow science fiction writer and comics scripter, John Broome by naming the museum the "Osgood Museum". John Osgood was one of Broome's pseudonyms.  The artwork may have been done by Bill Ward (or Sheldon Moldoff).
