Death By Witchcraft

While GCD claims that Vic Donahue possibly performed the inks here, they also claim that Rudy Palais was on pencils (I have some serious doubts about this; it doesn’t look like he even remotely touched this story in my opinion.) But whoever was responsible for the nifty illustrative duties here, this is definitely one classy Harvey tale of wanton witchcraft and eternal evil.

From the July 1951 issue of Witches Tales #4

this doesnt look like palais to me either.......but it looks like gcd is wrong for this issues credit entries

they have palais listed for 3 of the 4 stories which is also doubtful

>looks like gcd is wrong

I think you're right, possibly this partial info (though not all incorrect) is just put there as a place holder. It's a real nightmare at times figuring who did what in these old comics, especialy when alot of artists were paid to basically just rip-off or swipe from someone else. And some of them were pretty damn good at aping someone else's style.

Speaking of nightmares, get ready for NIGHTMARE WEEKEND which kicks off here tomorrow morn! See ya then!
