Black and White Wednesday: The Art of Haunt of Horror #2

Oops! Ol' Groove goofed again! Back during Halloween Countdown 2010, Ol' Groove shared the awesome art from marvel's prose digest Haunt of Horror #1 with ya and promised to do the same with the art from HoH #2 in 2011. Well, for some reason that didn't happen, but today I'm making amends! The second ish of Haunt of Horror (Summer 1973) might've been the final prose digest ish (it would soon return as a standard b&w comic mag), but boy did editor Gerry Conway send it off with a bang! Stories by Denny O'Neil, Arthur Byron Cover, Harlan Ellison, Fritz Leiber, Ann McCaffrey, Ron Goulart, and more? Art by John Buscema, Walt Simonson, Dan Green, Frank Brunner, Kelly Freas, and Billy Graham? What a mag, baby--what a mag! Wanna take a peek inside...?

Happy Halloween, Groove-ophiles!


  1. Any time I saw Dan Green solo stuff it made me wish he did more.
    Don't know why he basically always inked.

  2. Great article! I remember buying this one and thinking this Walt Simonson fellow was pretty cool.
