Halloween Week! The Boys from Derby: "The Night of the Demon" by Cuti and Sutton

A haunted "hello" to you, Groove-ophiles! We can't possibly let Halloween Week go by without a visit from The Boys From Derby! Today's creepy classic comes from Haunted #36 (February 1978)--but was originally published in Midnight Tales #9 (July 1974). Wherever it came from, 'tis a cool little chiller courtesy Nick Cuti and Tom Sutton! Dig it!


  1. I love that story. I love Midnight Tales. I love Tom Sutton. So, basically, I love it.

  2. dear groove..I've got one of these printings just not sure where to look in my collection. Charlton ,atlas,i don't think it's d.c

  3. Now there is a coincidence. I featured the splash page from "The Night of the Demon" on my own Halloween blog post spotlighting Tom Sutton's artwork. I'm going to add a link to your page.

  4. God, this must have been the only Charlton comic I ever bought. I thought this tale was so charming with the little girl. Such a great Halloween Tale!
