Tower of Shadows #8 - Bernie Wrightson cover, Wally Wood art, Steve Ditko reprint

Bernie Wrightson
Tower of Shadows v1 #8, 1970 - In the last of Wally Wood's fantasy stories, a medieval king pays the price for his evil ambitions. While marginally less impressive than his previous issue, Wood continues to demonstrate a mastery of the genre (this story was later reprinted in Conan #47). Bernie Wrightson's cover nicely straddles both horror and sorcery, reinforcing the interior story's theme. Also included is a fine Steve Ditko tale from Tales to Astonish #14. Other artists in this issue include Don Heck (reprint). This is number 4 of 4 Tower of Shadows issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 1 of 2 Tower of Shadows issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson, Wood, Ditko or Tower of Shadows issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist, Wrightson checklist, Top 10 Wrightson comics or Wood checklist.
