Black and White Wednesday: "Monster, Monster in the Grave!" by Funnell and Marcos

Ol' Groove just loves the way Pablo Marcos drew werewolves. They always looked scary-but-cool, like the one in "Monster, Monster in the Grave!" from Psycho #13 (cover-dated July 1973). The story is kinda cool 'cause it's highly experimental, with it almost reading like a heavily-illustrated prose piece by sci-fi author Augustine Funnel, but there are moments when the prose let the picture tell the story in such a way that the story actually depends on the illos. Very different, but what do we expect from one of Skywald's Horro-Mood mags, eh?


  1. I've always liked Marcos, and his artistic style seems particularly suited to these b&w horror stories - one need only recall his work on Tales of the Zombie.
    Looking at this story, I have to say it's a pity that Marcos never had a run on Werewolf by Night.

  2. Groove, if you like Pablo Marcos on werewolves, check out the Captain Britain story in Super Spider-man # 237 ( Ron Wilson pencils).

  3. Not just another werewolf story Groove! Keep up the good work!
