Zarnak. Zarnak was created by “Max Plaisted,” the pseudonym of Jack Binder, and appeared in the comic strip “Zarnak” (Thrilling Wonder Stories, 1936-1937).

In 2936 A.D. the world has been devastated by the world war with the Yellow Peril Mongols and the plague which followed the war. Human civilization is reduced to warring city-states. But at some point in the past a group of scientists built a spaceship and left Earth to create a new, peaceful, scientific world. Zarnak, a scientist, leaves Earth to go in search of this new world. He encounters metal-eating slugs on Vulcan and then an evil despot on Mercury.
