 “Journey Into Weirdness.” That’s the title of a comicbook pulp-adventure anthology Walt is writing and compiling for publication in 2019. Here’s the logo.

Below is the first feature completed for the anthology: a short, good-guys-versus-alien-monster adventure starring the Terranauts, a team of Earth-protecting explorers (created by my buddies Paul Daly and Don Secrease, as seen at HighAdventureComics.com.) The latest incarnation of the team, which evolves through various eras, is Terranauts: 2020.  Here are the characters, designed and described by Don, followed by their first adventure, written by Walt. (Here’s the script.)
