Black and White Wednesday: Gerry Boudreau and Alex Toth's "The Phantom of Pleasure Island"

Here's a pre-Thanksgiving day snack, Groove-ophiles! A Creepy (#75, cover dated November 1975) mystery-noir piece by Gerry Boudreau and the master, Alex Toth. It's a pleasant change from the usual horror and sci-fi fare, don't ya think?

See ya tomorrow for the Groovy Thanksgiving Day Comicbook Feast! Don'tcha dare miss it--it wouldn't be the same without ya!


  1. Nobody but nobody used shadows and black areas as well as Toth.

  2. Alex Toth, the master of pen and ink!

  3. I wonder if Toth lettered it as well? 'Cause the art and the text go together perfectly.

  4. Groov, that story is amazing on so many levels; perfect tone, beautifully paced and Toth is indeed the master. Thanks for posting this and thanks for all of the stories you put up on a daily basis.
