Synopsis for "What Happened in Dead Storage?"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Tales to Astonish #33.
Tales to Astonish Vol 1 33 001
An actor from yesteryear longs to return to the stage, but no agents can offer him any work. Disheartened, he resolves put aside the past and packs up his mementos to place them in storage. As he is driving to the address he was given over the phone, he holds the note upside down and drives to the wrong address. When he enters the building, he finds it to be in reality a disguised spaceship of aliens planning an attack upon Earth. He quickly resolves to ambush the spy they are waiting upon, and using makeup, takes his place. He gives the finest performance of his life in convincing the aliens that he's infected with a deadly virus and they must leave this world while he remains behind in a noble act of self-sacrifice.
