Black and White Wednesday: "Destiny: Oblivion" by Kraft, Kirchner, and Nebres

Y'know, Groove-ophiles, the best horror stories are the ones that take a cold, hard look at the realities of the human condition. Man's inhumanity toward man has to be the most terrifying reality of all. With Haunt of Horror #5's (November 1974) "Destiny: Oblivion", writer David Anthony Kraft, along with artists Paul Kirchner and Rudy Nebres delve into the dark depths of just how rotten and twisted some humans can be. There's no answer, only a question..."Why?"

  1. I knew it. I saw this link and image at the comics reporter and I immediately thought... A Filipino guy inked that. One of the older ones. So I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it was Rudy Nebres. Awesome! Thanks for posting!

  2. You're welcome, Gerry! It wouldn't have been the Groovy Age without guys like Nebres, Alex Nino, Ernie Chan, and Alfredo Alcala doing their thing!
