Someone posted the only MIS I own in #75. (BTW, nice copy!) I do have the collection of DC "Space" stories from the late 70's/early 80's.

This title has awesome art. It is great for me to see scarce Atom Age sci fi covers for the first time.

 

Here's a few later issues:

Just arrived. Only two copies in the census. The other is a 7.5. I still like this one.

I just read this story in my DC Adam Strange Archives. DC did a SUPER job on the art and color reproduction in their Archive series....far better than the superslick paper Marvel used, and which never seems right.

 

And it's one of the most bizarre stories I've ever read in comicdom. Adam Strange performs surgery on a living planet (sorry, Ego...you weren't the first!). Totally psychedelic, man!

I've posted this link before, but in case anyone missed it.....here is an incredible online resource of info on Adam Strange. Great breakdowns....only thing missing is some scans to illustrate it.
