Let’s tap into the bloody vein of Witches’ Tales Vol. 4 No. 1, February 1972. But first, let’s ravage this cover; wherein we have another example of an Eerie Pub artist creating a strange, hybrid monster of completely unknown origin. Presented is an eviscerated (partially) skeletal creature, tatters of flesh and organs hanging in a cage of ribs, with only claws and head worthy of flesh. And, quite naturally, he has a crew cut.
With “The Hungry Ghoul” we have Dick Ayers art and the practice of eating the dead in one story. Now, really, don’t you feel blessed today? With regard to the title, has a ghoul ever pushed himself back from the table and claimed to be full?
About “Toreador and the Demon” Table of Contents offers this: “The cold clammy hands reached from beyond the smelly grave to keep a promise of fame and fortune. The art is by one of my favorites from the malignant, Eerie pub. Universe, A. Reynoso. Page 3 is a fine example of the kind of ink-black beauty my man was capable of. Black and dark is the world of Mr. Reynoso, thank heavens!
Until next time, please do everything I wouldn’t do.
