Black and White Wednesday: "The Slither-Slime Man!" by Hewetson and Marcos

Hooooooooow's it hangin', Groove-ophiles! Y'know, with Skywald's Psycho #8, Archaic Al Hewetson was handed the editorial reins from former editor Sol Brodsky. With ish #9 (cover dated November 1972), The Archaic One was able to unleash his full vision, The Horror-Mood, 'pon fandom! It all started with the cover-lead feature, "The Slither-Slime Man!" (illustrated in all its gory glory by Pablo Marcos), in which Al even used a page to editorialize about what the Horror-Mood was and would come to be! History in the making, Groove-ophiles, and it's all right here for you, right now!
