"what's cookin'?" by jack davis (haunt of fear 12)...

And so it ends, 31 straight days of posting, the countdown to Halloween. Hope you've enjoyed this stuff as much as I enjoyed putting it together, this is always my favorite time of year, at least blog-wise (and probably otherwise as well). For our final comic, here's "What's Cookin'?" by Jack Davis from E.C.'s Haunt of Fear #12. Cover by "Ghastly" Graham Ingels...








I might manage another film-related entry if'n I can get my shit together later today, which is a longshot but not impossible so stay tuned for more something or another, and one way or another, have a Happy Halloween!

"country clubbing" by jack davis (haunt of fear 23)...

For our penultimate (nerd word) Halloween comic, here's another E.C. classic. From Haunt of Fear #23, this is "Country Clubbing." Art by the great Jack Davis, who I believe wrote this one as well (either him or Al Feldstein). This is another reprint from the 70's. Cover by "Ghastly" Graham Ingels...
