Two more pages of the final Sunday storyline for Sky Masters on the covers of this issue, from January 17 and 24, 1960, inked by Dick Ayers. Sky is able to demonstrate to Doctor Royer how the yoga techniques he’s learned enable him to slow his metabolism down to almost nothing. However, since the project was tied up thanks to bad publicity, Sky goes on to his next assignment, training some pilots in handling launches into space. Unfortunately, the test rocket loses control, sending Sky and another pilot out into space with only a four-hour supply of air.
Kind of obvious from the set-up where this one is going, without too many twists thanks to the quick ending when the Sunday strip wraps up in just three more weeks, but that’s some really slick artwork.
