Black and White Wednesday: "Introducing Brother Voodoo!" by Tony Isabella

Who is Brother Voodoo? Where did he come from? No, I don't mean in the comicbook uinverse, Groove-ophile--I'm talkin' 'bout the real world! Who came up with the name? The premise? The costume? Well, way back in Tales of the Zombie #2 (July 1973), Tony "the Tiger" Isabella gave us the lowdown on how the Marvel Bullpen developed one of the most maligned and misunderstood characters in Marvel history--and Ol' Groove's got that awesome article for ya right now!


  1. Hey Groovy One!
    I've completely forgotten this article. I used to buy almost every Marvel b & w. As well as every monster/supernatural hero they'd throw at us! Which I tell you was getting harder to do at 75 cents a crack. Plus the multiple titles. Being a very young teen age 12- 15 at that time. The only mag stores refused to sell me were Savage Sword of Conan & various covers with semi-nude woman on them. GGGrrrrr!!! Damn adults!

    I loved Brother Voo Doo as funky as he was. I think Son of Satan was the only character I never got into. Gene Colan's pencils as always were great. Moody,creepy & gritty! Colan & Ploog really knew how to creep us out.

  2. Love Gene Colan!
