Black and White Wednesday: "Buffaloed" by Herndon and Severin

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Here's another classic from the Crypt of Cool--"Buffaloed" by Larry Herndon and John Severin. If ya wanna ready a copy of this terror tale in pulp-ish person you'll have to track down a copy of Creepy #62 (cover-dated May 1974). Til then...


  1. That's a Berni Wrightson drawing of Uncle Creepy at the beginning of the story. Wrightson had just joined the Warren ranks in January, 1974 after leaving DC's Swamp Thing after 10 successful issues. His first Warren solo story, an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Black Cat", appeared in the same issue. He also did an ink wash drawing of Uncle Creepy which appeared on the inside cover. Wrightson did a number of drawings of Uncle Creepy and Cousin Eerie which were used from 1974 onwards as stock images for story intros/endings, besides those beautiful frontispieces.

  2. Brilliantly rendered. John Severin is missed.

  3. Thank you,Mr Groove!
    Mr Severin did it again!
