"Visions and Vengeance" and "The Lonely Vampire"

Greetings all my dedicated Crypt dwellers. Tonight I wanted to bring you two spine tingling tales of terror about my favorite subject - Ghosts.

From DC Comics Ghost #103 first up we have a short one-pager pulled from the files of Dr. Geist. A man whose scientific methods of investigation could never be questioned. With art by Howard Bender and Tony Dezuniga, this case study may have you sleeping with the lights on.

Then Visions and Vengeance, a murderous tale of love, hate and murder. There is nothing like a man on the side to bring out your crazy. With David Allikas on Script and Greg LaRocque on Pencils.

Get out the flashlight, pull the covers over your head and read on.

Now that I've set the mood.

For two years he's been her, what now?

"Back-Door Lover", eh? It's been years since anybody asked Uncle Ghosty to come in through the back door. Or any other door, for that matter. These days I'm more of an attic and cellar man.

We horror hosts don't get invited to a lot of parties. Well, at least I don't.

Fine! Don't invite me! Jerks!

But your old Uncle Ghosty isn't the only one who gets lonely. Just ask Baron DuMort. Not even his swingin' peace sign could stop him from being "The Lonely Vampire" from Ghostly Haunts #43, March, 1975. Scrypt by Joe "Thrill-Kill" Gill, art by "Putrid" Pat Boyette.

  1. A vampire with a peace symbol around his neck. Only in a 1970's Charlton comic! Thanks for posting.

  2. Darn those lonely vampires! Nice one.

  3. Sorry guys, not getting my blogger emails again.

    Glad you both enjoyed it. Hopefully we'll have more up still this week.
