Werewolf By Night v1 #7, 1973 - Still held prisoner in a traveling circus, the Werewolf becomes the sacrifice in an ancient pagan rite. Mike Ploog opens with a daring layout, but the remaining pages seem to wane in enthusiasm. Additionally, Jim Mooney's inks are heavy-handed and dominant throughout (excepting the montage of the wizard Kaman-Ru on page 15). His more traditional style lacks much needed impact and savagery. By contrast, Ploog effectively captures these attributes on the cover. This is number 7 of 12 Werewolf issues with Ploog art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ploog or Werewolf By Night issues. See also this blog's Ploog checklist or Top 10 Ploog comics.
