Number 256

Underground comics

Here are variations on a theme: two stories about people who find utopian civilizations underground, with two different endings. "The Men In The Mole" was published in Atlas Comics' Journey Into Unknown Worlds #55, March 1957, and "The Spelunker" appeared in Atlas' Marvel Tales #141, December 1955.

"Mole" was illustrated by John Forte, and "Spelunker" by famous Mad-man, Mort Drucker.

I'm not familiar with much Drucker stuff outside of his classic MAD work, it's really neat to see his distinctive line style and characters in full color.


THIS IS TOTALLY NEATO! A similar story....leading to two different conclusions by the heroes! Great!
