THOIA has a bad case of the crabs, as we deliver a much promised Basil Wolverton story that we’ve been talking about for a few days now, (*thanks to Brian Hirschfor the scans again), this one from the Feb ’53 issue of Journey Into Unknown Worlds#15--- plus another demented Ajax / Farrell tale of creeping crustaceous terror from the Nov. '53 issue of Haunted Thrills #12.
Want to see this crazy story again, but told in glorious black and white? Plus even MORE Basil Wolverton? Then head on over to Pappy’s today and go wild! Click HERE!
