Black and White Wednesday: "Plague of Jewels" by Bruce Jones

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Here's an early Bruce Jones masterpiece from Skywald's Psycho #3 (cover-dated September 1971). You can't always get what you want, a wise rocker once said, but you can get more than you bargained for, too! Just ask Gary and Wayne as they find the..."Plague of Jewels"!


  1. This shows Jones really learning his chops as a story teller. He's not the full package yet, but he will soon blossom into the best in the business. Interesting how the horror of consummating his marriage to the Princess foreshadows the sexual horror of his later more famous work 'Jennifer'.
