My grandpa was talking about a comic book he loved from when he was a kid. He said it was about an alien who came to Earth and learned about smoking cigarettes. When he got back to his home planet -- which was made of gas -- he went to light a cigarette, and the planet blew up from the flame. The book was from the early '60s. Does anyone know the name?

  • This reminds me a little of Hal Clement's Iceworld. In that novel the combustion products of cigarettes were intoxicating and addictive to beings from another world (who breathed gaseous sulfur). But this was not a comic, and no planet blew up. So not a match, Jun 20 at 0:40
