Addicted to Alex Nino: "Feathertop" by Hawthorne, Boudreau, and Nino

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! School's out, so Ol' Groove has decided to go all ejumacational on ya with Gerry Boudreau and Alex Nino's short-but-sweet adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's 1852 short story "Feathertop :A Moralized Legend" (which you can read right here if'n ya wanna)! What inspired DC to put this tale in Forbidden Tales of the Dark Mansion #15 (November 1973), Ol' Groove can't say. Perhaps a bit of inspiration came from the 1972 TV rip-off, er, adaptation, "The Scarecrow", that featured folks like Gene Wilder, Blythe Danner, and Will Geer?

  1. Hey Groovster!
    I loved all these great monster, horror & ghost story mags. I always thought Scarecrows were super creepy too. I loved Marvel's supernatural superhero The Scarecrow. Loved Dead of the Night #11. That featured the Scarecrow! The cover was just gorgeous!By Gil Kane & inked by Bernie Wrightson the master of the macabre!

    If u haven't already featured this story. Let me know! I'd love to do it!Love to see a Superman 75th anniversary week. As well as a 31 days of Halloween in Oct!
