High SF Weirdness


AMAZING STORIES, OCTOBER 1947

In an interview not too long ago, comics writer Grant Morrison downplayed his reputation for wacked and freaky ideas by defering to the naive gonzo concepts of the Golden Age and Silver Age writers. He claimed that comics were much nuttier in the past than they are today.

I sometimes feel the same about SF. I certainly know that I've never conjured up anything as bizarre as this eye-and-mouth living sphere, found in Rog Phillips's "The Despoilers" from the issue of AMAZING depicted above.
