Monster Movie Madness

I’m always happy to present a new comic written by the great Tony Isabella. I’m doubly pleased this time because today’s comic was a joint effort and (for the first time) I get to share a writing byline with Tony!

 

Art by Joe Sinnott & Vince Colletta from the story “The Day Manhattan Died!” in Gorgo #5, Jan. 1962. Charlton Comics.

 

 

Transcript:

SCENE: Gorgo and another monster (this one tentacled) are fighting, knocking over buildings as the city is in flames and a fighter jet fires at them.

CAPTION: Gorgo was done with this movie! He was a serious actor! He knew his lines! Why didn’t his costar know his? How hard was it to memorize…”RRAAAUUGHHH?”

1962 Art: Joe Sinnott & Vince Colletta Art Restoration: John Lustig
Writers: Tony Isabella & John Lustig
