Grimm’s Ghost Stories #8 - Al Williamson art


Grimm’s Ghost Stories v1 #8, 1973 - Al Williamson contributes a ghostly story between two sisters competing for a valuable necklace. The splash page of a car arriving at an old mansion is both foreboding and cinematic. It evokes a similar mood to that of the Dark Shadows television series of the same time period. While slightly shorter in page length than his first effort, his inking and layouts are equally impressive. One of the most effective panels is the eerie nighttime scene of the ghost chasing her sister through the woods (see interior page shown below). This story has also been reprinted in Grimm’s Ghost Stories #47 and #59. This is number 2 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. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
