STRANGE TALES #75 ("Return Of The Totem!", reprinted in WEIRD WONDER TALES #13; MONSTER MENACE #4)
When two prisoners escape, they take up refuge in a Native American reservation, where they are confronted by a living, monstrous totem pole. It hounds them back to the prison, where they try escape. However, the Totem breaks open the bars of their cell door, and frightening them into a state of shock.
The Totem then returned to the reservation where it began a rampage. An old shaman then took it upon himself to stop the creature, and throwing a potion into the creature's mouth, defeated it once and for all.
