Random Reads: "Escape!" by Ralph Reese

Check out this early Ralph Reese monster-piece, Groove-ophiles! From March, 1971's Monsters on the Prowl #11, prepare to..."Escape!"


  1. Reese is pretty amazing. I really regret now that I didn't read more of the horror comics back in the '70s where his work usually appeared.

  2. The twist is same as that of Shangri-La in James Hilton's LOST HORIZON---those who left it would quickly revert to their real age and condition. Neal Adams used this same device in STRANGE ADVENTURES #216 featuring Deadman.

  3. Ralph Reese broke into comics as one of Wally Wood's assistants, if I recall correctly. He may have worked at Neal Adams' Continuity Associates (as one of the Crusty Bunkers) as well.
