Eight Hands of Tenslith

Oh, I love the comics from the old days. This beautiful splash page by Gene Fawcette has it all: strange adventure, murky monster, dashing hero, b-b-beautiful heroine (with pirate boots!), sizzling spaceship, great lettering, bold and colorful. 

One of my favorite splash pages of all time.

Great story title, creature, art & text!

The bubble helmets for underwater action are splendid. But I think they would mist up after a while!
