Monstrom (Monsterbus p.281)

This is more like it! Better art, a more believable story, and it's well told: plenty of human interest and excitement. And a good moral: at no point did the creature ever threaten them. Of course, they couldn't take the chance. This was not a moral failing, but a simple measure of technology: the people had no way to protect themselves except through primitive violence. A nice story to remember and think about.

Note that both this and the previous story have elements that were later used in the Fantastic Four: the Watcher's sky full of fire (FF 48) and the silent Creature From the Lost Lagoon with his broken spaceship underwater.
