Reading Room LOST WORLDS "Alice in TerrorLand!"

Wev'e been running some really adorable fairy tale pieces...
... but here's a comic story that combines sci-fi, a classic fantasy, and a fear many children experience at one time or another...
Penciled by Alex Toth and inked by Mike Peppe, this tale from Standard's Lost Worlds #5 (1952) takes the common kids' fear of toys coming to life and adds imagery from Lewis Carroll's Alice tales to an alien invasion scenario to create a wonderfully-creepy story.
Sadly, the writer of this wild story is unknown.
We''ll have a gentler tale by Walk Kelly tomorrow...
