Countdown to Halloween 2010! A Wrightson/Kaluta Tuesday Two-fer

Welcome back to the Groovy Graveyard! Today we're going to curdle--er--cuddle up by the fire with DC's House of Mystery #195 (July 1971) to enjoy a double dose of demoniacal dynamite by two of Ol' Groove's fave fear-festers, Bernie Wrightson and Mike Kaluta. Wrightson's "Things Old...Things Forgotten" shows the master of the macabre slowly slithering toward Swamp-Thing territory with his "Moss Men". Kaluta's short-short is one of those twist-endings you see coming a mile away, but would be disappointed with anything different. And just for ghoulish giggles, I'm even tossing in Wrightson's creepy cover! Dig, dig, dig it, baby!

  1. That Wrightson cover is frankly stunning. Beautiful!
