Gwandanaland Comics #186: Drift Marlo - Space Detective

This 74-page book reprints both issues of Dell's "Drift Marlo." The first page claims to have received research assistance from the 1st Strategic Aerospace Division for technical material. Whether true or not, it's a fun ride, and reminds me of sci-fi radio dramas of the time that can be heard today on YouTube.

Drift Marlo is the security man for Pacific Coast Rocket Base, protecting the personnel, and the future of the space race. He prevents sabotage to a launch in one issue, and the kidnapping of a very special astronaut in the other. It isn't highly technical space drama by any means, but a lighthearted space/detective romp that I highly enjoyed. Full five stars, and a thanks to Gwandanaland for making this reprint possible.
