The Boys from Derby: "The Arena of Lost Souls" by Pellowski and Vosburg

What it is, Groove-ophiles! Let's check out a classic chiller from Charlton's Many Ghosts of Dr. Graves #45 (February 1974). It's a bit different from our "usual" fare in that it's not by members of our regular stable of Boys from Derby, but it does represent some very early work by a couple of comics' most talented and enduring practitioners, Mike Pellowski and Mike Vosburg. For the record (and according to the Grand Comics Database) "The Arena of Lost Souls" is writer Pellowski's seventh pro comicbook script, while it's artist Vosburg's second pro/color job. Not only is this tale an oldie, but it's a goodie! But ya don't have to take Ol' Groove's word for it...
