Monsters of the Deep

This might be the weirdest "love story" you read here all week... it might even be the weirdest one you read in your entire life. Really nice art too, anyone know who's responsible?

From the April 1954 isssue of The Unseen #14

UPDATE: Kenneth Landgraf writes in: "The artist of this story is JOHN CELARDO. I drew comics for Marvel and he inked me a couple of times at DC comics. He drew Tarzan for awhile..."

Thanks for writing in Kenneth!

INCREDIBLE ART WORK! A ROMANTIC FLING WITH AN OCTOPUSSY MIGHT NOT BE SO BAD ACTUALLY, THEY HAVE ALL THOSE SUCKERS ON THEIR TENTACLES........

Cool story, and very lovely art. I almost feel bad for her. But maybe someone can hook her up with aquaman or the submariner.

Wow.this gives a whole new definition to the phrase "tentacle-rape"...that said,im sure a certain H.P Lovecraft monster'd find her attractive.

Fun post, not particulary horrifying but I guess they don't all have to be, epsecially if the artwork is this nice.

Wow, that's depressing. Poor Lissa and Bill.

What was with all of the mermaid lovin' back then? Even Superman had a mermaid girlfriend with Lori Lemaris. I've noticed this theme comes up a lot in old horror comic books.
