Synopsis for "The Stoneman"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Journey into Mystery #70
(originally printed as The Sandman Cometh!)
Sandman (Alien) (Earth-616), Steve Bronson (Earth-616), Anne Bronson (Earth-616), and Robert Bronson (Earth-616) from Journey into Mystery Vol 1 70 001.jpg

An ex-marine takes his pansy son and wife out to Mexico to toughen the boy up. They explore a cave and find a sealed door that once opened, releases an alien creature made of sand that desires world conquest. The man tries fighting it, but his blows merely scatter sand which reforms. The creature reshapes itself so that it appears human and all of them return to the United States. As the creature observes humans, a military parade passes by, and the man attempts to attract the soldier's attention to attack the creature. They do so, but have no better luck than the man himself. Grenades, tanks, and bombs merely disperse the sand which reforms by willpower. The creature heads towards the beach where it intends to grow, but the man's boy becomes our hero of the story by defeating the creature with a pail of water.
