"World-Beater and Unggh Vs. Mars" (Prize Comics; 1944)

After yesterdays Strange New World post, I decided to continue the sci-fi-theme for another week here in the Catacombs. I had inadvertently delayed completing the review of those 1970's Roddenberry television trilogy pilots, so without further ado here is another gonzo adventure of World-Beater and Unggh from Prize Comics #47 (November 1944), also published by Prize.

This eight pager pits the conceited man from the future, his trusty caveman pal and their other frequent ally (I kid you not named, Jo-Blo; a fuzzy Martian chap) against a rampaging horde of .... flowers? Yeah! The story is once again written by Fred Morgan but this time with art duties provided by August Froehlich, and the tale is set on a very pedestrian-looking Mars, and is just too weird to describe any further, therefore let's get on with the show. The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story.
