NEXT: Simon Garth's ORIGIN!
Saturday, February 20, 2010
In the July 1953 issue of Menace #5, Stan Lee and Bill Everett unleashed one of the absolute best living dead tales in the history of Atlas Comics-- "ZOMBIE!" which debuted the soon-to-be popular and re-resurrected Simon Garth character, shambling his way through his first far-out exploit. I say "re-resurrected" because fast forwarding exactly 20 years later, Tales of the Zombie #1 hit Silver Age magazine stands featuring not only Garth's continuing updated deadbeat adventures (and today's great black and white re-print of the classic Golden Era story), but also a brand new prologue revealing to the world how our loveably rotten hero came to be. Stayed tuned for more Simon Garth all this week!
