SPACE WESTERN Hank Roper in "Battle of Spaceman's Gulch"

It's been awhile since we looked in on Spurs Jackson and His Space Vigilantes... here's a tale involving cowboys and aliens (what a great title for a movie!) and a convention of sci-fi fans!
(Before you make a snarky comment about "They had sci fi conventions way back then?", sci fi cons date back to, at least, 1938!)
Written by Walter Gibson and illustrated by Stan Campbell, this tale from Charlton's Space Western #43 (1953) is probably the first comic story to feature science fiction (instead of comic book) fans involved in the story!
