The Boys from Derby: "Journey to Lost Orlaak" by Tom Sutton

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! Whether you love to be scared or think love is scary, Charlton had a comic sure to tickle the fancy of either type fan: Haunted Love! Lots of cool stories ran in those mags, stories like "Journey to Lost Orlaak" written and illustrated by the crazy-talented Tom Sutton (who also painted that far-out cover) for ish #11 (June 1975). Fine story and fine art for the final ish of the series, huh?
Yeah, THIS cover got past the Comics Code! Can ya hear Don Ho singing "Tiny Bubbles"?

  1. An interesting story that reminds me a bit of H.P. Lovecraft's "The Shadow over Innsmouth," especially with that cover. Tom Sutton is always appreciated. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Tom Sutton always seemed to do his best work at low page rate Charlton.
