Reading Room VENUS COMICS "Escape from Death"

We recently presented "Escape to Death"...
...so here's the counterpoint (at least in title)...
So Kallam ends up escaping to death...
This never-reprinted tale from Atlas' Venus Comics #15 (1951) was mild compared to the really intense horror-themed stuff some of the other publishers were running!

While the writer is unknown, the artist was Sol Brodsky, who was originally a journeyman artist during the Golden Age and the first editor of Cracked magazine, but is best known as Marvel's overworked production manager during the Silver Age before founding the short-lived, but rather entertaining, Skywald comic and magazine line in 1970.
He returned to Marvel in 1974, where he took on the dual roles of Vice President of Operations and Vice President Special Projects before passing on in 1984.
