This short piece was done for one of Sal Quartuccio's books. I'm always amazed looking back at it, that there is so much more life, storytelling and design than in anything I was doing for traditional comics at the time. And I got to ink it myself.
A couple of bonus pinups this week. A Lori Lovecraft, and one of the drawings I did as development for Voodoo Mansion.
This week's HBO Tales From the Crypt cover is "Dig That Cat, He's Real Gone," directed by Richard Donner.
This is the first of the Linda Lovecraft stories that I did for Star*Reach comics back in the mid 70's. There's a lot of Wally Wood and Mad Comics influence...with some Frazetta thrown in. Enjoy!

Our HBO Tales from the Crypt bonus cover this week is "Came the Dawn". What I remember about the shoot, was meeting Brooke Shields and when I shook hands with her, she had a grip like a linebacker. And I'm afraid my drawing didn't come anywhere close to the brilliant job that Wally Wood did on the original comicbook story.
Here's the final installment of the Retrowood story, Gypsy Twins. Below is a development illustration I did while writing the story. Of course,my favorite model, Sarah, is the corpse. The other lovely lady is the Lira, the wife of my good friend Anthony Diecedue, and fantastic artist in his own right.

This week's HBO Tales From the Crypt cover is from one of the feature films, Bordello of Blood. This was the uncensored version...I'm not sure I even have a copy of the version they used for network TV. Enjoy...and we'll see you next week.
Here is the third installment of Gypsy Twins with detective J. Parker Wrighte. If you missed the first part, or any of the previous Voxcomix posts you can always catch up by visiting the archives located to the right. Happy viewing.
The HBO Tales from the Crypt cover this week was a gift done for producer Bill Teitler who was always a great guy to work with.
