Tor in "Red Death" (St. John; 1954)

While acting as managing editor for St. John, industry legend Joe Kubert, along with writer Norman Maurer, created the enduring character Tor; a prehistoric-human who debuted in the comic 1,000,000 Years Ago #1 (Sept. 1953). Tor went on to star in 3-D Comics #2 (Oct.-Nov. 1953), followed by a brief monthly comic series produced exclusively by Joe Kubert. This exciting tale called "Red Death" is from Tor #4 (July 1954). Tor adventures have been reprinted over the years by everyone from Eclipse Comics, Marvel Comics' Epic imprint, and even DC Comics through the 1990s. The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story.
