ATOM-AGE COMBAT "Third Element"

From the skies of World War II to deep space in the not-too-far future...
 ...where we're still fighting each other...
...until we're given a reason to unite against a common (alien) foe!
This tale from 1959's Atom-Age Combat #3 is illustrated by artist Dick Ayers, best-known for a long run as penciler (and inker when Jack Kirby did pencils) on Sgt Fury and His Howling Commandos.
With the USSR reaching outer space before us, we became concerned that not only could the Commies hit us with Earth-based missles and aircraft, but that they would reach the Moon and use it as a missile base as well as put missile-equipped satellites in orbit over us!

Until Next Week...
