Chamber of Darkness #7 - I Found the Abominable Snowman

This 1970 comic reprints a Kirby/Ditko story from TALES TO ASTONISH #13 from 1960.



Very nicely paced story about a man who comes across a photo of the Abominable Snowman, and starts on an obsessive search through the Himalayas for the mythic beast. The exotic locales come through nicely, and the story builds cleverly to the inevitable conclusion. Definitely one of the better overall Atlas stories, and the Ditko inks over Kirby are always a treat.

Published 1970
