Ever wonder where writers come up with their ideas?

...well, here's a never-reprinted story from Atlas' World of Fantasy #2 (1956) that offers a clue!
Of course, if it was an original manuscript/draft by Verne (which I think was the writer's intent), it would be in French...
The writer is unknown, but could be Stan Lee or Larry Lieber.
The art is by Al Williamson who did quite a bit of work in the fantasy and Western genres during the late 1950s for Atlas before it became Marvel.
