Where Monsters Dwell

I just had to post the entire set of pages from this Basil Wolverton comic!  I love the way he presents the moral dilemmas of the characters, reduced as they are to a state of savage kill or be killed state of existence, all because of a mad scientist with a grudge against the press.

Cast into the netherworld, the hero of the strip is immediately faced with the dilemma common to westerns:  cooperate with the struggling community; or strike out on his own.  He goes it alone, and he even escapes.  But in the end, he is tormented by his ties to the community he left behind.
