Here’s the second Adam Strange story from his first appearance in Showcase #17 (1958, DC Comics.) That’s right: two complete stories in one little comic book. Didn’t anybody tell Gardner Fox about writing decompressed story arcs for the trades?

It’s not like you’re going to find this issue in the bargain bin, Martians. Even in so-called “Good” grade (which we all know means ‘good enough to house train your puppy’) it’s going to be a couple hundred bucks. Much more reasonable is the DC Comics Archive Edition Adam Strange hardcover from 2004. That’s more like $25, with white pages, and a better coloring job. If that doesn’t charge your Zeta Beam, we don’t know what will!
