Lobster Johnson and the Knights of the Moon - R.A. Wonsowski

Splash page - worm's eye view, in the Egyptian tomb of Khonshu.  The high temple walls are covered in hieroglyphics, and standing tall in an enormous recess is the white alabaster statue of the moon god of vengeance, Khonshu, two crossed scepters in his hands, one in the shape of an ankh, the other topped with a crescent moon. Foreground, LOBSTER JOHNSON looks around warily, aware that something is amiss, holding a blazing torch high before him, the flames reflecting in his goggles. Background, descending from the ceiling are three warriors in white scarves covering their heads and faces, shirtless and barefoot in white pants. Each has a scimitar in one hand as they rappel down the walls with the other. The skeletons of Nazi German and Communist Chinese soldiers hang from the walls and ceiling by unseen hooks, spikes, and nooses.

CAPTION: If previous experience has taught me anything, I should expect company in three...two...

TITLE: It's pulp action like you crave... Lobster Johnson in...BY THE KNIGHTS OF THE SILVERY MOON! - by Wonsowski, Sienkiewicz, and other hard-to-spell names!


  1. I laughed at the bit about the hard to spell creator names.

    That aside, I think this is definitely one of those pieces you need to see fully arted up to fully appreciate.

  2. Now there's a splash page! I have every faith that this would look grand - the descriptions alone are enough to get my imagination running along.
