Reading Room Annex: CAPTAIN VIDEO in "Dark Side of the Moon" Conclusion

Read the first part of this tale HERE.
 Aliens operating on the Dark Side of the Moon plan to attack Earth, and only Captain Video (with the Video Ranger) can stop them...
You may ask, "What's so special about this? It's typical sci-fi."

The "alien invasion force" from Captain Video; the Serial. Note Captain Video (Judd Holdren) and the Ranger on the left in clever disguises.
Only in the comic, unencumbered by financial or special effect restrictions, was the full, unfettered potential of the show (such as it was) realized.

and the kool Captain Video stuff from Amazon, available below!
