The Devil's Disciple

Sin #2 in our December Dedications to The Devil, this one from the August-Sept 1949 issue of Adventures into the Unknown #6. Does anyone know anything about illustrator R. S. Pious? There's a teeny bit of info credited to him on GCD, and nothing else anywhere.









What's that clawing noise you hear at the sidedoor? Why, it's none other than Kitty LeClaw, coming back with another purrrfect "cat-horror" classic clenched tightly between her sharp little feline teeth... it's a wild (literally!) Doug Wildey chiller from the Feb-March 1952 issue of Dark Mysteries #5. Show her your appreciation friends, and give her a treat by clicking HERE!

Oh how sweet. Love conquers all, even big daddy lucifer.

And speaking of, the apartment I was living in last year was three blocks away from where Anton LaVey's black Victorian mansion once stood. Today it is sadly a boring yuppie condo (the Church of Satan was tore down in 2001).

Here's a clip of the greatest LaVey performance

Oh good grief, I read that as "The Devil's Discipline"! Strange Freudian thought slip there. Might have something to do with Frank, but you don't know him and we ain't going there.

Sorta looks like the Tasmanian Devil also put in an appearance.
:-p

No vintage ad this time? :-(

Love those big clunky cars back in the day...

Hope everyone is having a great weekend... I have a bunch of Atlas tales lined up for the next week or so, hope so far everyone is enjoying Devilcember (thanx for that one KTLC!) and as usual thanks for the comments.

If you look up Pious on Lambiek it suggests R. S. Pions. But searching this name doesn't produce any real information either, at least none I could find. I would like to know more too!

>look up Pious on Lambiek it suggests R. S. Pions

The first time I searched this name on Lambiek it suggested a totally different name than the one you got! Oh well, thanks again! New post coming up here shortly...

Howdy,

This probably gets us no closer to his identity, but, I found a listing for art by R. S. Pious at this site:
