End Of Days


001

With all the talk about the world’s imminent destruction, it seems appropriate to post one of the most apocalyptic Golden Age tales I have ever read.

“Plaything,” a story so fatalistic it is difficult to imagine children were the intended audience, originally appeared in Weird Tales Of The Future #6 (Key Publications, 1953).

The story was drawn by Tony Mortellaro.

Not too difficult to believe this story was produced during the height of the Cold War, eh?
