Only Printing / August 1972 / 36 pages / Last Gasp Eco-Funnies
This is another H.P. Lovecraft issue, though Spain Rodriguez does a story of his own instead of one of Lovecraft's. Richard Corben illustrates the first story, Lovecraft's "The Rats in the Walls," which is about a man who returns to his ancestral home only to be driven mad by his family's curse. Charles Dallas illustrates a waking nightmare in Lovecraft's poem, "To a Dreamer," while Larry Todd takes on Lovecraft's "The Shadow from the Abyss," in which a man's mind is transposed with another mind from an ancient, mythical race, which slowly leads to a horrific discovery.
Last Gasp produced approximately 10,000 copies of this comic book. It has not been reprinted.
