"Vampires From Beyond" & "The Doom Witch"

Off the bloody bat, The Bloody Pulp wishes to say a bloody thank you to loyal reader and pal, Gumba, who recently donated several outstanding issues of Eerie Pub. mags to the cause! Thanks a million, my fiend, for your outstanding generosity!

Before moving to the stories, let's drool a bit over this cover, which is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Not only is the black haired wench being dismembered stone cold sexy, she's animatronic! You really can't ask for more. Plus, you have to love a girl that wears aqua pumps to a boneyard.

Now, let's get right to the meat of the matter and break into all the stories from Horror Tales Vol. 2 No. 4, July 1970. First up we stumble upon a Eerie Pub. redraw and the pitchy work Antonio Reynoso in "Vampires From Beyond." Go on, treat yourself. If you aren't good to yourself, who's going to be? Trot your ass on over to my pal, Karswell's The Horrors Of It All to catch the orignal version! Of note, the kind of originality Reynoso brings to the table when doing an Eerie Pub. redraw!

Oscar Stepancich was one of the best pure draftsman in the Eerie Pub. stable, here strutting his skills in "The Doom Witch," a redraw of "Heads of the Dead" (Beware #7, 1954)
