The Prisoner of the Space-Patch, eh? and with added hyphenation to suggest that a Space-Patch is a particular thing. I'm impressed by the madness of it all and can't help wondering why the menace of the Space-Patch has not been exploited by other sci-fi writers over the years. It's a rather splendidly tricky dilemma that can't even be fixed with a good poke from a broom handle!
Well that was Strange Adventures #140, for you. Out in May of 1962 and with a spacesuit design that's beginning to acknowledge reality over ideas perpetuated from 50's cinema.
