Santa’s Claws

Here’s another evil black and white xmas tale, this time from Frank Brunner and the final issue of Major Magazine’s Web of Horror series. WOH had tons of talent onboard from the start, guys like Bernie Wrightson, Syd Shores, Jeff Jones, Mike Kaluta, etc. To find out more info about this very interesting, yet very short-lived 3-issue series check out Richard J. Arndt’s site HERE.

From the April 1970 issue of Web of Horror #3

FYI: One more day to go with the xmas theme, and for those of you wanting a return to the Golden Age you'll get it on Christmas Day.

And thanks again to Keith Smith for all the great Warren and Major xmas scans for the holiday special this past weekend and today.

Cool stuff...

SANTA THE ASS KICKER! IF YOU HADN'T MENTIONED BRUNNER I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THIS WAS EARLY WRIGHTSON.

This does look a bit like Bernie's early work. I really like the fact that this story is narrated by a spider!

I let these magazines get away from me in the 1970s during one of the periodic purges of my collection. It's good to see this again. Too bad I'm too arthritic to kick myself in the ass for selling good comics like this! ARRRGGHH!.

p.s. Merry Christmas to all.
