The Man Who Refused to Die-Suspense-1950


Not sure of the artist here on tis Atlas story but it looks familiar in spots. What else is familiar is the plot, which was inspired by LOST HORIZON, a variation of which would be used years later as the origin for Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE. And then there's the lead character's name--Jonathan Storm. Sound familiar?

One might also mention the original fate of Silvermane, in The Amazing Spider-Man #73 (Jun '69) – (Aug '69) #75, albe├»t that some d_mn'd excuse was eventually found to bring him back from the … uhm … unborn.

Pretty sure it isn't Maneely. That face at bottom right of page 1 makes me think of maybe a young Don Heck.

Atlas Tales thinks this might be Mike Becker inked by Vince Alascia.
