Groove's Faves: "The Scream of Things" by Brodsky, Smith, and Colletta

What it is, Groove-ophiles! A new week brings new chills, and here's a fave illoed by Barry (Windsor-) Smith! Heck, anything drawn by Bashful Barry lands in Groove's "faves" pile! Today's creepy classic is "The Scream of Things" and it's written by Allyn Brodsky and inked by Vinnie Colletta. Believe it or not, this ghostly gem was buried in the middle of Tower of Shadows #7 (July 1970) between a Atlas-era Lee/Kirby reprint and a new sword and sorcery piece by Wally Wood (not bad company at all...). Barry wasn't a super-star yet, but it wouldn't be long...

  1. Hey Groovy One!
    I was always a huge fan of BWS. Not too much a Colletta fan though. I wish someone else had inked this story. Boy I hate o be the realitor trying to sell that joint!

    That town should had called the Ghost Busters or Dr.Strange! Now that would had made for a great horror/ghost/Dr.Strange tale!Or called the Hulk wrecking crew!LOL Remember when that Freddie Kruger wannabe. In the 80's tried to take down the Gray Hulk? Boy did he regret that!DOH!
