Monsters from the deep freeze
It's number two of our week of monster stories.
Since comic books stories of the Golden Age were mostly "one and done," it's somewhat unusual, although not unheard of, to have a story "continued next issue." Ah, for that part of the Golden Age...if you missed an issue you weren't lost.
This Airboy adventure is part 1 of a two-part story, set in the frozen north. It's got a villain named Zzed and some monsters frozen in the ice. It's drawn by Ernie Schroeder, from Airboy Comics Volume 7 Number 4 (1950).
Come back tomorrow for part 2.
We've had more Airboy stories on this blog, including one set in Paris and featuring Crabmen. If you like these monsters you'll probably like the Crabmen of Paris. I showed it in Pappy's #968.
