Black and White Wednesday: "Alien Affair" by Bates and Mayerik

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Today we're gonna dig on a sci-fi/horror shocker by the titanic team of Cary Bates and Val Mayerik! Moody, twisted, and beautifully illustrated, "Alien Affair" from Creepy #109 (May 1979) will thrill and chill, baby!


  1. I love Val Mayerik's art. He was one of the 3 whom Dan Adkins blessed the comic industry with (they'd been his assistants/ptoteges); the other 2 being Paul Gulacy and P. Craig Russell.
