Via The Corner: It happened, way back in 1976. As you might expect, the dialogue is hokey as hell (I don't remember the writer, Ann Robinson), but the artist is immediately recognizable to any Spidey fan from that era: Ross Andru. The plot is this: An alien name Prodigy wants teens to wantonly have babies so that he can take them all back to his planet "Intellectia" as slave labor. He has a "magnetic" voice which influences young people.
Hey, I wonder -- did Critical Race theorist Derrick Bell get his idea for "The Space Traders" from this Spidey tale? They sure sound similar. Similarly dopey.
