...A Skywald Horror-Mood Classic... ...The Comics Macabre...

‘The Comics Macabre’ is another one of the 10 most essential Skywald Horror-Mood classics by “Archaic” Al Hewetson. “Macabre” Maelo Cintron illustrates this story which features characters based on Al Hewetson, Maelo Cintron, Pablo Marcos, Herschel Waldman, Dr. Fredric Wertham (author of ‘The Seduction Of The Innocent’), and Len Darvin (then president of the Comics Code Authority). Hewetson is the publisher that every one is waiting to see. Cintron is the artist with the portfolio who is let in to see Hewetson first. Marcos is the artist who falls asleep and is presumed (well that would be telling). Waldman is the man who asks if Marcos is asleep, and Wertham and Darvin are the two older gentlemen. The story takes place in the Skywald offices and features Skywald characters. Truly a gruesome tongue in cheek tale and most definitely a Skywald Horror-Mood classic. …Enjoy…
