Stop-Motion Comic books

Looking at that old Gwangi comic got me thinking... what captures the fire and excitement of Harryhausen's stop-motion like a Dell comic-book adaptation?
Ah, what the hell...they're still cool! (I was just surprised how many other Harryhausen movies that they covered!)









Looks like Gold Key had to jump in on the excitement (for at least one adaptation)

So read 'em and weep...or vice-versa...
Thanks for this post go out to ol' Dell and Gold Key comic mainstays, as well as Ray Harryhausen and Charles H. Schneer for being silver screen mavericks and doin' it their way.

Jeezus, comic books for kids! Who'da thunk it? I sure was glad I made that Jason screening at the ol' Spook Show!

The cover to Marvel's version of "the 7th Voyage of Sinbad" was pretty great as well. Much like that second issue of their "Star Wars" comic in that it was dynamic and unrepresentive of any scene in the movie.
