"The Shadow From the Abyss Out of Time"  
From SKULL COMICS# 5 in 1972 , "The Shadow From the Abyss" by Larry S Todd. This is a lovingly detailed adaptation of HP Lovecraft's "The Shadow Out of Time." While the art is a bit clunky, it fits the mood and it is just crammed to the gills with Lovecraftian trivia. For an underground, SKULL COMIX was surprisingly literate. Sure, there were excursions into pure bad taste that enjoyed the lack of censorship. But some of the stories were well done and the heavy Lovecraft influence was a real treat.

Thank you very much, but the pages 2 and 4 are the same.

Re: problem
Oh heck. Thank you, I will try to fix it. This happens so often that it's pretty clear posting complete stories is beyond my abilities.
