UNKNOWN WORLD "Serpent Queen"

Wertham wrote "In ordinary comic books there are pictures for children who know how to look."
While you gaze at this magnificently-rendered splash page, ask yourself "What is the significance of a leashed one-eyed snake in this panel?"
(You'll know by the end of the tale...)
The writer of this never-reprinted tale from the one-shot anthology Unknown World #1 (1952) is unknown, but the illos are by little-known artist Bob McCarty, who did over a hundred stories in the 1950s, but rarely, if ever, signed them!
BTW, though this title was a one-shot, the numbering continued with a new title: Strange Stories from Another World, for four more issues (#2 to #5).

Join us next week as we present another tale your grandparents didn't want your parents to see!
