Number 748

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.

You need to fix your link. I think you meant to link to

and not to

Thanks, Mark...correction made. I appreciate you helping me.

I've made several errors lately which readers have been kind enough to bring to my attention so I can make the appropriate correction.

Hmmmm. Maybe I'm tired, or maybe I'm slipping into senility a few years ahead of schedule.
