Reading Room: NATURE BOY "Jiver from Jupiter"

Before Percy Jackson was...Nature Boy!
...the early Silver Age teen hero with amazing powers granted by the ancient Gods!
If this story from Charlton's Nature Boy #5 (1957) has the "feel" of some of the wackier Superman Family stories of the Silver Age, there's a very good reason!
It was written by Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel!
The dynamic art was by John Buscema, shortly before his return to Marvel Comics, where his renderings became the "house" art style for over 20 years!
