Thee BLAZING MOON Issue #27, July 1970. This is an adventure of Thee BLAZING MOON II, seventh son of the original golden age BLAZING MOON. This is the pivotal issue that brings TBMoon to his final(?) locality and the beginning of his super-saga; The Lost sunken world of ULTIMA-THULE. Ultima-Thule, once a great Hyperbolican city, many thousands of years ago collapsed under the polar sea to become one of the subterranean Agarthan worlds. The population of this now desolate city are monsters of every kind.
Thule is now a cross between a mythic underground empire and a mythic Tartarus; It exists as a place for defeated monsters to be walled up never to be unleashed upon the waking world above. All of its infernal inhabitants are held at bay by the inner BLACK SUN- whose etheric energies cannot be breached by any individual mythic beast. In defeating Demonicuss, TBM imprisons himself in the doomed megalopolis- the only hero in a metropolis of malevolence! Guest starrring the FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER, who is freed from his 10 year prison sentence/torture, begun in the last issue of REVENGE OF SAVAGE FRANKENSTEIN (#57). Frankenstein is different now- transformed by Demonicus from a 10 ft. hulking powerhouse into an almost sophisticated human-like hero. After saving TBM’s life and helping to defeat Demonicus and hordes of monsters, Frankenstein would escape to the surface to be abducted and, later, hired by MAJESTIC-12 to become the world’s greatest super-agent against threat of monsters aliens and DRACULA himself; VIC FRANKENSTEIN: Agent of M.E.D.U.S.A.!
Thee BLAZING MOON, however, trapped in ULTIMA THULE forever- becomes the gatekeeper to these ghoulish gangsters! TBM, with help by NOSFERATA, DAUGHTER of DRACULA- tricked into exile in Thule by her treacherous father, carve out a life together- fighting the villainous hordes of the Utima Thule, self appointed wardens and like some ersatz Hades and Persephone, they try to make a home and fight for justice in the ultimate dark underworld!
