Another cheesy chiller from Harvey's Chamber of Chills (public domain). This one's from #3 (Oct 1951). Art and, possibly, script by Bob Powell, with art assists from Howard Nostrand and Marvil Epp (whose name is on the tombstone in page 8). Trigger warning for suicide.

"Al [Ewing]'s one of the best of the current crop of 2000AD writers, along with Si Spurrier and Rob Williams – a British sensibility not a million miles from my own." -- Garth Ennis

"Uber relaxing into a three- and five-panel structure is something I find fascinating. Three-panel is something I connect intensely with Warren Ellis (and Millar, though never in this mode). Five-panel storytelling is Garth Ennis." -- Kieron Gillen

Harvey Comics is best remembered as a publisher of kids' comics, but like MLJ/Archie, there was a time it dealt in a variety of genres, including horror, giving that up only when the establishment of the Comics Code Authority in 1954 put an end to stories such as the one I present here in its entirety, from Chamber of Chills #7 (April 1952; scans of this public domain title courtesy of ComicBookPlus.com). The gruesome denouement of "Crawling Death" (writer unknown, art by Abe Simon and Don Perlin) got special mention in Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent. Trigger warning for gore.

Typical human reaction: 'I'm going to kill it!! It might be some rare species!!' )

That title isn't a joke. Junji Ito is having an official collaboration with Pokemon. Pokemon has created a site entitled "Kowapoke" (or "scary Pokemon") which features, among other things, Ito's take on certain Pokemon. So far only two are up, but they'll probably release more along the line.

Let's see )

Previously on part 5, Starscream almost had everything he ever wanted, Megatron showed up to ruin everything, Bumblebee was refreshingly sensible, Metalhawk was suspicious, Prowl was sad, Wheeljack was dead(ish), and lots of people got hurt.





Megs seriously needs to chill. )

'I just really love Deathlok. Sometimes it comes down to that. At the time I pitched this idea to Marvel they were fine with it. The idea was that they're doing this new "Deathlok" series so why not give the other guys one last go?' -- James Robinson
