Random Reads: "The Eyes of Cagliostro" by Glut and Abel

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Today's macabre mini-masterpiece, "The Eyes of Cagliostro", written by Don Glut, features what is probably Ol' Groove's fave Jack Abel art job. Cool layouts, neat inking tricks (love those tones!), and the mostly monochrome coloring (kudos to whomever handled that chore so well) just perfectly added to the creepy mood. If you can find a copy of Red Circle Sorcery #11 (December 1974), grab it! Until then...enjoy...


  1. The colors just about *have* to be the work of editor Gray Morrow, don't they? It looks just like the kind of coloring he often did for his own art, and he was obviously very hands-on on his Red Circle editing jobs.

  2. Another unknown gem Groove! Keep 'em coming!
