Crossover Cover: Scourge of the Skies

Captain Philip Strange battles a mechanical pterodactyl developed by the Germans to terrify the Allies. Strange claims unnamed “scientists” believe in the existence of dinosaurs living in “an almost impassable jungle in South America.” Strange even remembers Harmer, a Canadian explorer, who talked of a “lost world” in “the upper Amazon country.” Strange is referring to Maple White Land from Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World.


  1. Is this one of the original Philip Strange stories or is this a later work by a modern writer?

    1. Oh cool! There weren't many crossovers in the original pulps so it's interesting when there is one.
