First Line of Dialogue or Text
Of all the tragedies caused by the Hydrogen War of 1986, one of the most heart rendering [sic] was the band of homeless, hungry boys who charged into isolated villages, terrorizing the inhabitants!
Genre
science fiction
Characters
Atomic Knights [Gardner Grayle; Bryndon Smith; Douglas Herald; Wayne Hobard; Hollis Hobard; Marene Herald]; Organizer Kadey; Mrs. Porter (carpenter's wife - mentioned); wild ones [Ken; Danny; Pete]; Blue Belt six; Dr. Howard Melton (mentioned)
Synopsis
The Knights encounter a roving band of boys who want to become outlaws when they grow up. Marene disguises herself as a boy and infiltrates the group.

Kadey and his Blue Belts stumble upon a pre-war invention that turns people into automatons. They use it to enslave the rebel boys until the Knights defeat them.

Indexer Notes

Signed in panel 3 on (last) page 15. Also included under the signature is "30" which is typographical shorthand in journalism for "End" indicating that Anderson knew this was the last Atomic Knights story he would illustrate.
