||The Battle of Spaceman's Gulch
||Spurs Jackson and Strong Bow go on a mission to investigate explosions seen on the moon, leaving Hank Roper to meet a group of costumed science fiction fans invited by Spurs for a nearby local convention. Expecting the fans to show up in costume and an airplane mocked-up to appear like a rocket ship, Hank is surprised when a real alien from Neptune named Jawa shows up instead. Jawa is an artopod, as are his crew of scouts preparing for an invasion of Earth. Hank must think quickly to outwit Jawa and his insectoid friends.
