RETROWOOD H.I. OR L.O. Pt.6

One of my favorite comic projects was the fictional world of Retrowood, my answer to doing a historical story about Hollywood and the Great Depression without being burdened with historical accurary. Our motto was always our tales are based on False Stories and Innuendo.  Enjoy  private investigator J. Parker Wrighte on his quest for upward mobility in the land of sunshine.

Our Tales From the Crypt bonus covers this week are "Seance" starring John Vernon, Cathy Moriarity and Ben Cross, and written by Harry Anderson of Night Court fame. The second cover is "Showdown",directed by Richard Donner,  which was originally planned for a companion series called "Two-Fisted Tales" which was to have been hosted by Bill Sadler. Regretfully it never happened.  It was also one of the few covers that was pencilled by someone else (my studio mate Shawn MacManus) while I inked it.

This week's HBO Tales From the Crypt bonus covers are "Only Sin Deep" starring Lea Thompson, who was the first actor I actually got to photograph for reference for a cover (usually they gave me stills to work from.) I was amazed when I told her what I needed and she immediately gave me the exact pose. I was impressed...but then she later played a cartoonist in the TV series "Caroline in the City." The second cover is from "Only Skin Deep", and featured the beautiful Sherrie Rose.
