The Comet Kings - Edmond Hamilton

Someone is destroying commercial ships, and it is possible it is just meteor problems, until checked out, then, it seems, there is no evidence of ships or meteors. Untold thousands of dollars of damage are caused!

When a woman Captain Future is fond of goes missing, the Planet Patrol call him in. He and the Futuremen end up in a desperate quest, first tracking down, then imprisoned on the planet of the Cometae.

Captain Future leads a prisoner revolt Conan would have been happy to be in the middle of, in true crazed sword-wielding maniac style.

Extra-dimensional cthulhoid energy beings called the Allus are a tad tricky to deal with, you could say, even more so when it seems Joan has joined them.

Desperate measures of transmogrification are needed. This one is really wild.
