Journey into Mystery v2 #2 - Neal Adams art


Journey into Mystery v2 #2, 1973 - A modern day Jack the Ripper terrorizes New York City, eluding two seasoned detectives. This Robert Bloch story is beautifully adapted by artists Gil Kane and Ralph Reese. Neal Adams also lends an uncredited hand, inking the final four pages. His handiwork is more low key than usual (see interior page below) but nonetheless effective. This story was later reprinted in Masters of Terror #1. Other artists in this issue include Billy Graham and Mort Lawrence. This is number 1 of 1 Journey into Mystery issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Journey Into Mystery issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
