Graphic adaptation of Clark Ashton Smith’s 1932 weird tale “The Vaults of Yoh-Vombis”

The Eldritch Dark, a website designed “to facilitate both scholars and fans in their appreciation and study of Clark Ashton Smith and his works,” has an awesome ten-page graphic adaptation of “The Vaults of Yoh-Vombis,” Smith’s classic archaeological science fiction/horror short story set on Mars that was first published in the May 1932 issue of Weird Tales magazine. The adaptation, written and illustrated by Richard Corben, was originally published in DenSaga #2, Fantagor Press (1992).
