Manic Monday Triple Overtime--Just One Word!

As a wee Monstrobot, I learned a very important lesson from the movie Son Of Dracula.

When Count Alucard showed up, and was revealed to be Dracula who disguised himself by reversing his name, well, it was a revelation. Every time a new neighbor or classmate showed up, I would quickly figure out what their name spelled backwards was. Nope, I wasn't going to get fooled by an Mr. Namflow, that's for sure.

[Editor's note--snell still does this. It's very annoying]

Anyway, it seems as if there are some galactic empires that need to learn this lesson:

"Citsalp"?!?! "CITSALP"?!?!?!?

Oddly, the planet Citsalp doesn't seem too worried...

But our over-confident aliens are still confident!

Again, Citsalp is not afraid...

Get ready for the shocking surprise twist!!

Man, those invaders are in big trouble when Redav Htrad shows up at their planet...

At least we now know that Mr. McGuire was right all those years ago:

From Space War #17 (1962)

I love this kind of story, where you can hear it wheezing desperately to reach the "surprise" ending. One page to go...wait for it...half a more panel...DELIVER ZINGER!! Huh? Why weren't they surprised?
