Black and White Wednesday: "Satana" by Thomas and Romita and "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Satana*" (*But Were Too Awestruck to Ask) by C. Conway

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Hey, it's almost Halloween! The Devil you say? Nay, the Devil's Daughter I say! Satana, the Devil's Daughter, to be exact! Created by Roy Thomas and John Romita, Satana made here debut in Vampire Tales #2 (July 1973). Vampire Tales? Why, she was a succubus, ya know--and a soul-eater is even creepier than a blood-sucker if ya ask moi!

Now, Ol' Groove could write a big ol' post about the creation of Satana, but Marvel already did that way back in Vampire Tales #3 (September 1973). So, to satisfy your curiosity, here's Carla Conway's article, "Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Satana* (*But Were Too Awestruck to Ask)"!


  1. Really enjoying the October fear-fest, Groove. Some very interesting, spooky stuff here lately.
    Although I might sleep better when this month is over. There's only so much scariness I can handle.

  2. Satana was a strong, good character. I read "Deathsong" as a kid and was greatly impressed. I don't know who the artists were (they signed as "The Tribe") but I liked it more than the Maroto version. Also, I still haven't understood who or WHAT actually was the villain, Dansker. But he was a scary, tough old bastard.

  3. Impressive, Romita's art looks sooooooooo gooooooood in B&W
