Countdown to Halloween 2010! Bruce Jones' " A Rottin' Deal"

Bruce Jones was one'a those guys who really "got" the EC style and was able to update it to the sensibilities of his Groovy Age audience without sacrificing any of that classic style. Is it any wonder he was in such high demand by the b&w publishers of the day? His work appeared almost like clockwork in Warren's and Marvel's black and whites. Jones also contributed quite often to Skywald's horror-mood mags, though he'd have to use pseudonyms like "Philip Roland" to keep from getting axed by James Warren for "working for the enemy". Here's a really far-out and frightening example of Jones' handiwork from Nightmare #3 (cover-dated April 1971) called "A Rottin' Deal"!
