SHORT BUT SWEET!!! WOLVERTON CAN REALLY CREATE HORRIFIC FACES!
the last two panels are really chilling to be eaten to death while laying in a pile of bones!!!!!!
excellent, better than the last one. thank you
You have helped make this one of the best Halloween seasons I can recall. Thanks for all the great, rare horror comic stories. Looks like you went to a lot of trouble in scanning them.(Possibly even tweaking them to make the images look their best?)Waves of my gratitude are beamed your way!
>You have helped make this one of the best Halloween seasons I can recall.Thank you! Wait, isn't everyday Halloween?And yes, I do slightly tweak the contrast a bit on the golden age scans, the paper yellows over time and colors fade so I try to get it a little closer to the way it proably/hopefully looked over 50 years ago. Thanks for noticing! These last few posts though have come from newer reprint copies so the paper isn't quite as old and which means not so much tweaking for me to do.
This story accomplishes so much in a mere three pages...I gotta admit, I'm more familiar with Wolverton's kooky humor stuff, and this glimpse into his monster-haunted brain is knocking my socks off.
Well put on an extra pair of socks this Sunday because Anti-Atlas Guy just submitted a Wolverton story. Someone requested Where Monsters Dwell and now we're all gonna get it.
The last panel is just incredible, great use of light and says so much without showing you much at all!
lives in a cave?? sounds screwey!man that 3rd to last panel is terrifying. can't wait to see WHERE MONSTERS DWELL!
I first read this story when I was six years old -- made quite an impression... thanks for posting it!
Page two, panel one, originally had the guy's face in blue. You've made it flesh-colored. I'm not sure if the original was a mistake, or they were trying to make the character appear sinister. Anyway, nice restoration.
No restoration on my part here, this is from the 70's reprint
The art in this is remarkable; quite exceptionally good, almost too good for such a predictable story. The bottom half of the last page would outclass most horror comic art in this computer age.
