The Monster God
Wallace Wood drew this fine 7-pager for Captain Science #1, from 1950. It's the second story I've presented by Woody from Captain Science. The other is here. Captain Science is another of those comics which, while you wouldn't know it by looking at it, has ties to DC Comics. I have linked to this site before, which tells about "DC's Other Comics", but this kind of trivia is so fascinating (to me, anyway) I want to link to it again in case you missed it first time around.
The art is great, but the story is right out of a myriad of fantasy/sf sources, John Carter of Mars, et al.; a guy is transported instantly to another world to find a beautiful babe.
