The Thing From the Center of the Earth

For the rest of the week I’m turning this blog into Harvey Hell with a full blown terror fest of mummies, mad scientists, evil cults, and rotting corpses. But first up---

THE THING FROM THE CENTER OF THE EARTH!

Originally presented in the June 1952 issue of Tomb Of Terror #1

CAN YOU SCAN 'THE LITTLE PEOPLE' FROM THIS ISSUE ALSO?

this is a cool story and love the art, its perfectly set up like a mindless 50's science fiction movie.
sometimes its okay to have a real ending instead of the open ended twist

I'll put it down as a request and hopefully get to it in the next week or so, no problem!

Very well-written and set up,i agree,this could've been a 50's sci-fi script,no problem.the descent into the pit reminds me a lot of THEM!and i like how you never get to see the monster till it attacks.my only gripe is that it's established that it's an intelligent being but thats never elaborated on.still,your right,sometimes a simple ending is better than a contrived twist.

I got a chuckle when the professor said "He's smashing thousands of dollars worth of equipment! We must stop him!"
It always comes down to the bottom line, doesn't it?
