Review: Scary Tales #1

Series hostess Countess R.H. Von Bludd gets an origin story in this horror anthology debut. Unfortunately, none of these tales – from Charlton regulars including Joe Gill, Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton – offer much in the way of originality or artistic execution.

Review: Chilling Adventures in Sorcery #3

Despite some supernatural or sci-fi elements, this issue’s tales hardly live up to the monster mayhem promised by the cover. The four main stories in this anthology are all written by artist Gray Morrow. Perhaps not surprisingly, his rendering and layouts prove more accomplished than his tales.

Review: Creepy Things #1

On a stormy night, a young man hitches a ride from a vampire – and lives to tell the tale! The lead feature is one of four sub-par stories from the likes of Enrique Nieto, Dick Piscopo and, thankfully, Tom Sutton (who also crafted that excellent cover!)

Series host Colonel Whiteshroud explains the Monster Hunters Club to the visiting Countess Von Bludd. While a better debut than sister series Scary Tales, this first issue by the likes of Nicola Cuti, Joe Staton, Wayne Howard and others lacks any real creative spark.

A secret race of Cat People turns Greer “The Cat” Nelson into Tigra, a werewoman who must battle both Werewolf by Night and Hydra. Another winner from Tony Isabella, this one illustrated by the journeymen art team of Don Perlin and Vince Colletta.

Review: Weird War Tales #93

Soldiers modeled on classic horror monsters storm a French castle where Nazis are building android duplicates of world leaders. This debut of the Creature Commandos, crafted by J.M. DeMatteis and Pat Broderick, shows potential, but weak backup features bring down this issue’s overall grade.
