Comment: The cover show the approach of the comic; the aliens are the usual monsters. Ross Lanning is an explorer who is in South America. The base camp is hit by a violent storm. Ross gets thrown into a volcano by 'savages'. He ends up responsible for letting the aliens loose. He ends up captured by spies and tortured, but saved by the aliens who have a very interesting story to tell and a purpose to fulfill. There's two unrelated stories, one funny, one about a mad man and a tiger. The flying saucer story is good, and puts out the idea that there was a very ancient civilization on Earth that was very advanced (like the mythological Atlantis but more so), and was destroyed by their own actions. One thing I've wondered about, though, is that, if such a thing were true, wouldn't that civilization have launched some satellites that would still be in orbit? Yet none have been detected. A good comic.

Comment: @Garthane, this book according to the Grand Comics Database (GCD) was issued three times, the 1950 version has No. 1 on the cover and the ifc is an advert, rather than the black and white line drawing giving the story details. The 1952 version, which is this book, doesn't have an issue number and has different covers to the 1950 version. Then there's a 1953 version, which is listed as 'A Realistic Reprint', but no cover image is recorded yet at the GCD.
