Black and White Wednesday: "Comes the Endtime Chapter 2" by Richardson and Alcala

What it is, Groove-ophiles! Well, what it actually is is waaaay too long since we last checked out a chapter of Alfredo Alcala's magnificent Voltar strip as presented in Warren's The Rook magazine! How long has it been? About this long! Anywho, today's chapter (scripted by Will Richardson) comes from The Rook #3 (April 1980) and it's right here, right now. Dig it!!


  1. Love Alcala's work and detail he put into each panel. First time I was introduced to Alcala's art was in 1974, Christmas morning I received "The Savage Sword of Conan" #4, w/ Buscema. Matter of fact I liked the teamed up w/ Buscema and Alcala. I recently purchased Vol. 1 of "The Savage Sword of Conan" which Alcala worked on about 3 stories. Do you know of any Volumes he was the dominate Illustrator in?

  2. The black and white really makes Alcala's masterful rendering apparent -- so many textures!
