Severin in Black and White

Here are two stories that John Severin illustrated so effectively in black and white, using the special double-tone Grafix (formerly known as Craftint) artboard he was so expert with. A chemical was applied to bring out the toning.

"Return of the Golem" is from MONSTERS ATTACK #1, from the publishers of CRACKED, 1988.

"The Stars My Salvation" is from the Warren special, UFO AND ALIEN COMIX, 1977, in turn reprinted from an earlier appearance in a Warren magazine. Sorry, I don't know which one. The drawing is top notch, combining the alien with the historical. A nice mixture.

Damn, that was awesome! I doubt that I would ever have had the opportunity to read this one, unless somebody nice posted it online for me.

So....thanks!

Thanks, Chuck. It makes me feel like those lonely hours spent over a hot scanner are worth it!
