Grimm’s Ghost Stories #5 - Al Williamson art

Grimm’s Ghost Stories v1 #5, 1972 - Al Williamson's art is darkly lit, perfect for this story of a man haunted by his brother's ghost. Each page is finely detailed in its inking, and his adroit handling of light and shadows only heightens the tension. The disembodied specter floating through the hallway (see inset above) is only one of many superb panels throughout. This is one of only a handful of comics Williamson drew for Gold Key during the 1970s. Although not as well-known as his science fiction genre works, these mystery stories are vastly underrated gems. This is number 1 of 2 Grimm’s Ghost Stories issues with Williamson art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Grimm's Ghost Stories or Williamson issues.
