House of Mystery #189 - Neal Adams cover, Wally Wood art

Neal Adams
House of Mystery v1 #189, 1970 - After gambling debts mount, a greedy heir to a fortune connives to get his money sooner but the family cat proves to be an obstacle. Jerry Grandenetti and& Wally Wood team up with on their second horror tale together. Like before, Grandenetti's wildly drawn pencils are tamed and polished by Wood's precise inking. Neal Adams' cover reflects the interior story, made more eerie by his realistic style. Other artists in this issue include Tom Sutton. This is number 15 of 26 House of Mystery issues with Adams art and/or covers and number 5 of 7 House of Mystery issues with Wood art and/or covers.
