Auro, Lord of Jupiter in "The Life Drinkers" (Fiction House;1943)









Hello, my friends!

I've spent a portion of the latter part of this fine day trumpeting the following information, so if I'm a being bit redundant to those already in the know, please forgive me. After twenty-three years, I left divorce court this afternoon officially a free man. I then quickly hastened to one of my favorite eateries and busted a gut on seared Ahi tuna, a classic blue cheese wedge salad, a baked sweet potato & a 10 oz rib-eye; plus a sinful sundae and two glasses of Capt. Morgan.

I damn near skipped doing this post, but I was so giddy I thought, "Why the hell not?" ; and fear not good people, the final stories from Strange Terrors #6 will flesh out the remainder of the week once we get past tomorrows final "Icons of Horror" post.

Auro Lord of Jupiter battles the pesky Yasgadorians in "The Life Drinkers" from Planet Comics #25 (July 1943), originally published by Fiction House and written & illustrated by Dick Charles & Rafael Astarita. Oh, and the front cover is drawn once again by the great Dan Zolnerowich.

The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belong to the original publisher and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.

Now, if only a ready, willing and able female was within reaching distance, to really kick the celebratory atmosphere into high gear.

Enjoy!
