Random Reads: "Spawn of the Devil!" by Jones and Grandenetti

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! How does a publisher get a rip-off (which I actually like better'n the original) of The Exorcist into a Comics Code-approved comicbook? Ol' Groove doesn't know, either, but Atlas/Seaboard did it in Tales of Evil #1 (December 1974)! Here are Russ Jones and Jerry Grandenetti with "Spawn of the Devil!"

  1. It was his work for these Atlas-Seaboard books that made me see the light at last and fall in love with the dynamic pages of Grandenetti! Just read the Prez trade and it was absolutely delightful.

  2. You mean "Russ", not "Bruce" Jones, right?
