Random Reads: "The Isle of the Dead"

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! "The Isle of the Dead" was the cover feature for Gold Key's Twilight Zone #53 (September 1973). It's a creepy and cool story, and in true Twilight Zone fashion--its creators are mysterious as well. I've done some research, and have found the artists for the other features in TZ #53 (Adolpho Buylla, Luis Dominguez, and Jack Abel), but have found nuttin' for this ghostly gem. Oh, well, enjoy the mystery as you spend a few the Twilight Zone!


  1. Awesome Groove, love Gold Key books, thanks for the post

  2. Hey Groovster! Thank you for posting the old Twilight Zone series. I loved these those five issues of Dell's Flying Saucers & the Dark Shadows comics as a kid. Charlton's B & W $6 Million Dollar Man & Space 1999 too. Keep on Groovin!!

  3. Good stuff Groove! It ain't Sad Sack but at least it's a nice break from folks in colorful tights LOL!

  4. I'm going to guess that either Jack Abel and/or Jack Sparling might've drawn this one. GK was infamous for not ID'ing their creators until years later, when they were likely shamed into it.
