After directing a series of some of the most critically-acclaimed and influential horror films ever (CAT PEOPLE, I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE, NIGHT OF THE DEMON), Jacques Tourneur's swan song was a fantasy/adventure based on an Edgar Allan Poe poem called WAR-GODS OF THE DEEP (aka, CITY IN THE SEA), starring Vincent Price. Dell Comics acquired the licensing to include the comics adaptation in their "Movie Classics" line to coincide with the summer release of the film.
With a script by an unknown author, the story is illustrated by John Tartaglione (pencils) and Dick Giordano (inks).
