Except for the Beatles, only H. G. Eyeball gives you eight days a week. In this case I had just one more flying saucer entry I wanted to show, two stories of a boy and his Martians.
The Eyeball hopes you have enjoyed this week, and remember, if you see a flying saucer, smile and say hello. Next time we'll go back into to the mox nix box, and you don't know what you're going to see. Even I don't know!

Trust Jack Kirby to come up with at least a couple of stories for Flying Saucer Week. These are some reprints from the 1970s or late '50s-early '60s Marvel Comics fantasy stories. Jack used the Easter Island theme more than once.
I'm not sure why that special pencil fell out of a flying saucer: hey aliens, check your hatch locks. Kirby used his own special pencil to bring us a very imaginative story.
Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blogzine published an earlier Jack Kirby story with a flying saucer the first day of this H. G. Eyeball Flying Saucer Week.
