The Warlords of the Moon
One of the interesting things about this tale is that a real observatory is the focal point of the narrative, Mount Palomar. This certainly provides an educational aspect to the story (the observatory's 200 inch telescope). CapJr's intelligence is emphasized in this story. A caption says, "But Captain Marvel Jr's keen brain rapidly calculating the origin of the bomb which hit Earth!" He can also no only fly through space unaided but he can talk it's vacuum also. Script by Otto Binder (GDB) and art by Bud Thompson. This issue has three Thompson stories where the artist is hitting his stride on the Captain Marvel Jr strip.
