The Half-Creatures of the Sargasso Sea

It's that time of year again when THOIA sets sail into the weird, unchartered waters of the high seas to catch some hideous horrors from the deep! So inflate your water-wings and load your harpoon gun, today we dive into the October '54 issue of Web of Evil #19 for "The Half-Creatures of the Sargasso Sea."

I like how insanity (or being "nuts") is the constant theme in this story from beginning to end -- kind of a hangover from your Halloween stories?

Whew- finally it isn't October (the BUSY month) and I can relax and do things that I like doing! Of course, my first stop was right here! And to be greeted by a favorite Quality story is icing on the cake!! Thank ye much!!

I love how Larpo wished them a good day on page 5. They may have lost their humanity, but they retained their civility.

More like the sugar rush from all the candy wearing off John... guess I better chug a couple more bags of M&Ms!

Thanks Mike. You've been sorely missed around these parts lately, don't be a stranger!

>They may have lost their humanity, but they retained their civility.

Haha, the cruel to be kind...

Yeah, Web of Evil is indeed guilty of that at times... pretty sure most of the posts I have lined up next from this series don't cater to that brand of cop out ending, as you all shall see-- NEXT!

Thanks for the comments!

I'm happy to discover this super adaptability humans seem to possess. I was surprised to learn that after hundreds of years, living on a broken and rusty city of of lost boats can turn us into half fish people--but then it seems to start happening after just a few weeks even. What I do not understand is why it keeps happening even when the human is returned to some different environment. The only plausible ending of this story would have been if, when Raymond invited the skeptics over to his house, he discovers Larpo has had time to revert back into a naked old man now that he's back in America.
