Escape From Death

Yesterday we escaped TO death with Basil Wolverton, today we escape FROM it with underrated Atlas artist Manny Stallman. And hey, don’t let that fiery splash page fool you, this definitely is not a Human Torch tale! (FYI: This post is actually a request granted exclusively to Monster Blog’s John Kaminski. Enjoy JK!)

From the May 1952 issue of Suspense #18

>I'M NOT REALLY INTO THE HERO STUFF

Well you can rest assured I will NOT be posting super hero stuff here, at least not unless it's something really horrific... but not horrific in the Rob Liefeld sense

to me the art is mixed, the flaming guy looks great but the fat guy looks too phoney and out of place with the rest of the characters

still not a bad story, doesnt really go anyhere but its pretty fun

Lovely! I'd been looking for this story...

I like it. The artwork is nice, and who can't love a flaming guy? Reminds me a bit of the Indestructible Man/Man Made Monster films.
