Great Zoth! On auction, we present a surviving portion of a Golden Age story illustrated by the heralded Kurt Schaffenberger. This is quite a lovely selection from which to choose for any would-be bidders. The pages feature the Great Prince Ibis in an exciting adventure where he and his "gal Friday" Taia investigate the mysterious death of several geologists. Upon transporting to Los Padres where a volcano blast has suspiciously destroyed the entire village, the duo is met by a boy too frightened to flee, who relates the story of molten rocks falling from the sky and transmogrifying into a destructive assembly of human torches.

Ibis the Invincible equips his party in flame-retardant asbestos armor to protect the trio against the mysterious flame men from the Earth's core. Golden Age art like this is exceptionally rare, surefire to make any fan want to grab their Ibistick and grant themselves a winning bid on all this amazing page.

Pg. 6 of "The Flame Men" depicts Ibis the Invincible tumbling down the interior wall of a volcano after his makeshift floating platform burns away beneath his feet. Luckily he is wearing an asbestos suit that prevents him from suffering the same fate as his ill-suited conveyance.
