Black and White Wednesday: "Killer Hawk" by DuBay and Wood

Classic Warren b&w coolness is headed your way, Groove-ophiles! Today we're checking out "Killer Hawk" by Bill DuBay and Wally Wood. This tale originally saw the light of day in Eerie #61 (September 1974) and has been reprinted in Galactic Wars Comix (late 1978, from which Ol' Groove pinched the scans for this post), again in Eerie #131 (Spring 1982), and Eclipse's World of Wood #4 (Spring 1986). Somebody must like this sci-fi shocker, huh? Yeah, a lotta folks like it--bet you're gonna dig it, too!

  1. I can't believe your scans of "Killer Hawk" didn't elicit comments. Classic story. Woody's drawing is just a *hair* stiff, but quite solid. Well done. When I was an impressionable youth I was quite shocked at the change in the character's appearance (and the event preceding it) when this story first came out.

    It's a shame that today's generation of comics fans don't buy anthology comics, or perhaps we'd see some classic one-shot short stories drawn with the ferocious intensity of the likes of Frazetta, Wrightson, Jones, Adams, etc., but from the new generation. If only they drew so well.
