Monster of the Day #1296

One thing I love about this series (and I love everything about this series) is that you never know what they will do. It just seems that the editors put together a book on whatever interests them. This volume, like similar ones on Don Heck and Tom Sutton, focuses on an artist. There are also ones on publishers (Eerie Publications) and topics (Voodoo, the Devil, Zombies, etc.)

Again, though, it can’t be emphasized enough how lovely the books are. You really have to see them in person to get the full effect.

    Ya know…it would seem a monster with one eye would be a lesser menace chasing the fleeing female cause, ya know…no depth perception.

    I don’t want to hear about your one-eyed monster Beavis.

    Powell worked in the industry from the 30s to the 60s. His b50s work is solidly-drawn and attractive, with a cartoony element. Wikipedia tells me he did pencil art for the MARS ATTACKS cards from Wally Wood’s roughs.
