Oh, Alfredo! "A Rejection from Cain" and "This Little Witch Went to Market" by Pellowski, Kashdan, and Alcala

HOOOOOOOOOw's it goin, Groove-ophiles! One more day 'til Halloween, so Ol' Groove thought you might dig a two-fer from PLOP! #3 (October 1973) featuring gorgeously ghoulish, goofy, and groovy art by the great Alfredo Alcala. First up, here's how some writers might've handled..."A Rejection from Cain", according to author Mike Pellowski...



...next we have "This Little Witch Went to Market", written by the uber-talented George Kashdan!





How's that for a pre-Halloween treat, baby?

  2. I was always a fan of Alfredo! Between Alfredo, Alex Nino, Tony Dezunga and Nestor Redondo the Phillippines certainly had their share of comic book masters. We were so fortunate that so much of their work was printed here. I really wish someone would reprint his Voltar strip with translation. I have seen some of the pages and they are as mindblowing as the inking he did over John Buscema's work on Savage Sword of Conan. This page shows he was just as masterful at comedy as he was at heroic comics.

  3. Nice! Alcala has long been a favorite of mine, and it's not often you see him doing humor-style artwork!
