Invaders from AXZ-Rocke Mastroserio-1965

Been dealing with ants in our bathroom so this one pager spoke to me. Interesting that "insecticide" was referred to as a "harmless chemical."

Strange little story. Did the insecticide also shrink the alien insects...who don't look dead by the way.

A cartoon published in the Saturday Evening Post in 1956 shows a tiny insectoid alien who has just entered a house through an open window and is standing on a side table, addressing a housewife. “Greetings, Earthlings…” the alien says as the woman sprays it with insecticide. See Marione R. Nickles, ed., The Saturday Evening Post Cartoon Festival (New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., 1958), 148.
