Random Reads: "The Man Who Owned the World!" by Sutton & O'Neil

 HowOOOOO's it shakin', Groove-ophiles! Here's a short shocker from Chamber of Darkness #4 (January 1970) plotted and illoed by Tom Sutton and scripted by Denny O'Neil. It's not about undead monsters or things that go bump in the night, but for some reason, Ol' Groove finds this fear fable more haunting than ever before...


  1. I didn't appreciate this story when I first read it. Found Sutton's artwork a little too cartoony. But have grown to like it in subsequent rereadings It certainly has a bleak ending.

    1. Bleak endings were all the rage in 1970s sci fi--until Star Wars. ;D

  2. Karma's such a bitch... at least he rid himself of the stench of the 20th century, heh heh! What a groovy story, thanks Groove! :)

  3. I'm gonna have to buy this comic now!:)

  4. I was never a big fan of Tom Sutton, till I saw his Planet of The Apes stuff....mind-blowing!
