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!

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).

Halloween Week! Black and White Wednesday: "The Fortune" by Will Eisner

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! What says, "Halloween" more than a spooky old house, a sinister storm, a sweet damsel in distress, an unseen psychotic killer, and The Spirit? Not much you'd say? You'd be right, baby! From Warren's The Spirit #11 (October 1975) here's Will Eisner's The Spirit in "The Fortune"!







Oh, yeah, "The Fortune" was originally published in The Spirit Section, May 11, 1947.
