Cosmonaut - By Mike Kelly and Mike Kearns
A tired, thirst-driven Cosmonaut and his mischievous, chimpanzee co-pilot are stranded in the desert, having been days since the initial landing. After their only hope of rescue is destroyed, a chase into the desert reveals what seems to be relief in the badlands, only leading to mind alteration and disaster.
