Throwback: Comics

Yeti's been in comic books since 1953!

Let's throw it back to a few favorites from the funny papers.

Lords of the Upper Air

It's definitely worth revisiting this Ghost Comics story from 1954, which is one of the very first yeti depictions in the popular culture. Plus, it's legitimately creepy with an original concept.

Here's what happens:

Lurking blue snowmen are the "Lords of the Mountain" and turn the explorers into zombie ghosts and control them.

Sound familiar?

Game of Thrones' White Walkers (2011's Honorary Yeti)
I wonder if George read this comic as a six-year-old.
