Fantastic Comics #3 - pt. 3
When you're in an underworld dive, and you overhear anything, no matter how innocent sounding, it just has to be a big clue to something.
It's unclear how many thugs are present, but it appears that Yank and X-16 are "greatly outnumbered" by only three of them.
Most interesting are the giant saurians -- giant lizard-like creatures 10' long with long claws, short tails, the ability to fly through the vacuum without Belts of Transmitting, and a movement rate that must be at least 23,300 (escape velocity from Venus).
The Magic Glass seems to allow magic-users to cast a spell of higher level than they could normally cast, since the Death spell is usually beyond most casters.
But this is all speculative until we read the rest of the story -- next time!
