Casper Space Ship (August 1972)



I have posted about the Apollo 16 mission and its Command Module "Casper" before.

So this is sort of the 3rd installment of  exploring ghosts and Apollo.  This is by far one of the stranger comics regarding an Apollo mission I have ever come across. So in honor of "Apollo July" here is Casper the Friendly Ghost and Trip to the Moon!

 Maybe ghosts and space ships seems strange enough but just wait...








OK NOW THE STORY STARTS TO GET WEIRD















As a final bit of fun, here is the record that Harvey put out to honor the mission.

  1. I can in all sincerity say I never saw that coming. It's only the LEM's "change of heart" at the end prevents this from being even more disturbing. I guess the LEM realized at last that, even though he made some very poor decisions recently, he still had the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission...
