Halloween Week! Making a Splash: Gene and Tom's Tomb

Happy Halloween, Groove-ophiles! Instead of giving out that ol' teeth-rotting candy, let's dig on some mind-bendingly awesome artistry, shall we? What better pages to peruse on this particular day than 13 of Ol' Groove's fave  Tomb of Dracula splashes? Gene Colan and Tom Palmer provided some of the best malevolently  magnificent splash pages of the Groovy Age--and (usually) Marv Wolfman wrote all over 'em!


  1. Brilliant - Gene Colan and Tom Palmer ,the dream team for a horror title. Or any title, really. Astonishing how they were able to do work at that quality consistently - month in, month out - for so long.
    Thanks for posting


  2. Just fantastic, and right in time for Halloween. One of my favorite titles.
    That comic was one of a kind!

  3. Hello, these are wonderful. Can you please start posting more Tomb of Dracula full issues ? You haven't done many of those. Thank you for this site. I discovered a lot of differnt comics because of you and ended up buying them on ebay.
