Download Monster Hunters #5
Here is yet another story illustrated by Carlos Vila and this time credit is properly accorded to the Über-prolific Joe Gill, which I missed the first time around. [Sigh...] That's what I get for blogging well into the wee hours of the morning. This time out I'll also be certain to point out that the cover painting is courtesy of the inimitable Tom Sutton.
While I was updating this blog entry with the proper writer's credit assigned, I thought I would also tack on the story that was drawn by then newcomer Mike Zeck, which is called "The Last Monster Hunter!" According to the Grand Comics Database, this story was reprinted in Hot 'N Cold Heroes (A-Plus Comics, 1990 series) #1 .

Download Scary Tales #4
One nice thing about Charlton comic books was that they could be both unpredictable and downright weird and I mean that in a good way. While Marvel Comics and DC Comics offered mostly standard, predictable fare within their line of horror anthology comics, Charlton was an alternative—a breath of fresh air. "Fear-Feeder" was one of those pleasant exceptions. That and Countess R. H. von Bludd could tell me a bedtime story any day of the week.
I don't know who scripted this story, but the art is by the vastly underrated Carlos Vila. Oh, and that beautiful cover painting is courtesy of "Terrifying" Tom Sutton.
