Shades of Gray: "A Girl and her Dog" by Conway and Morrow

What it is, Groove-ophiles! Today we're gonna dig on a classic chiller by the talented duo of Gerry Conway and Gray Morrow. It's called "A Girl and Her Dog" and was originally published in House of Mystery #196 (September 1971). Enjoy!

  1. DC post code horror is such a strange ride sometimes. Usually the art is top-notch (as it is here, and especially the couple silent panel pieces), and the writing is usually by good to great craftsmen, as Conway was.

    Yet, they all lay so flat. Many depend on "as it turns out" endings, as this one does, are inconstant to make the story work (for instance, there's no good indication of what blocked the dog sensing evil before.) And this ancient evil is going to cause a war that's already on, and already been planned out by the time of the blitz?

    Still, fun to read, and I'm glad you post this stuff. I told you it was a strange ride!
