Today we remove the skullcap of Terror Tales Vol. 4 No., 6 October 1972, just to see how much gray matter we can find. It turns out quite a lot! But first, the cover!
At center of attention we have a raven haired lass with the prerequisite shredded clothes; wrists lashed to fasteners set in the green-slimed floor of a dank cavern. So far so good. Absolutely standard fare. The denizens of this septic cavern, however, put the cover directly into the Eerie Publications zone. Where else but a Fass mag might one find a reptile/vampire and a blue-skinned, saber-toothed demon/Dracula about to do battle over a blood-spattered maiden in a tattered, black skirt? Personally, my favorite touch is the turquoise iguana man breaking the fourth wall by staring directly at the reader. Just don't return his gaze too long. His breed consider that a threat.Our first story, "The Gruesome Creatures," has artist Alberto Macagno giving us some really fine work. I love his fly with claws - a very terrifying concept. Let the pictures run a moment in your mind, and you'll see what I mean!Download: THIS POST!
Next we find the soot-covered stylings of Eerie Pub. master, A. Reynoso. As far as I can tell, no one knows anything (or hardly anything) about this artist. And that's just the way I like it.
ooh, don't go too far - there is so much more gray matter to spoon out of this still-warm brain case. Next, we'll try on for size "The Strange Escape" and "Vampire Witch" from the same issue!
