56 YEARS AGO TODAY

STRANGE TALES #86 - Kirby/Ayers cover 
    "I Created Mechano" (13 Kirby/Ayers pages)
    "Georgie's Globe" (5 Ditko pages)
    "Beware of Meeks Bringing Gifts" (5 Kirby/Brodsy pages)
Once again atomic power causes a big problem in a Kirby drawn tale.
Ditko's strange tale, like Kirby's leadoff, features a character the average comic reader of 1961 can easily identify with.  
A Kirby First Contact 5 pager is the closer. According to Nick Caputo a word balloon coming from a planet indicates a Larry Lieber script.
