One Panel Adventure Seeds

Here are some vignettes clipped from Golden Age comics chosen for adventure inspiration.  I've contextualized in the world of the City, but they could take place almost anywhere...

An obsessed half-ogre strongman, a cold beauty...a recipe for more than big top drama?

As madmen go, at least he's polite.

The leader of the spider-folk talked a lot.  That was good.  It kept him from using his scalpel.

A ghoul on a spree, with a taste for beautiful dames.

When you're on the lamb, you take your chances with back-alley sawbones.

Is the radium stolen by Doctor Death and the mysterious Life Machine somehow connected? Story on page three.

This is a neat concept. You apparently own a lot of weird stuff :)

Aos said...

I love all of these. Can you tell us where they are from?

Trey said...

@Seaofstarsrpg - Nice. They are from the same comic.

@Harald - And this is only the weird stuff I have in digital form. ;)

@Aos - Sure. The pics have their source in their name, but I'll repeat the issues, at least: Whiz Comics #6, Whiz Comics #1, Nickel Comics #5, Spicy Tales #8 (this isn't a Golden Age book, but reprints material from that era), and Whiz Comics #1. All of them but Spicy Tales are Fawcett books.

The image with the ape-man and the woman is the most compelling. Her indifferent attitude towards the general death threat is amusing.

Trey said...

Thanks guyss. @GrumpyCelt - yeah. How's that for self-absorbed!
