Black and White Wednesday: "Speed Demon" by Ernie Colon

Check it out, Groove-ophiles! During Atlas/Seaboard's short but oh-so-memorable life, writer/artist Ernie Colon not only worked on Tiger-Man and The Grim Ghost, but he also found time to write and draw this short shocker for the first ish of Weird Tales of the Macabre (cover-dated January 1975)! Can you dig "Speed Demon", race fans?


  1. The vitality of Ernie Colon's artwork during this time is utterly fantastic. Our most underrated living comic book artist.

    Rip Off

  2. I always found Ernie Colon's art too cartoony for serious stories.

  3. I think Colon's art is fine here. Made me think of an horror-themed Michel Vaillant story, which is quite disturbing.
