Journey into Mystery v2 #2 - Neal Adams art

Journey into Mystery v2 #2, 1973 - A modern day Jack the Ripper terrorizes the city and a lone cop has a very personal stake in finding him. This Robert Bloch short story is nicely adapted by Gil Kane, whose pencils are further enhanced by Ralph Reese. His precise inking adds a somber clarity to the pages, including the murdered woman in the opening scene. Interestingly, Neal Adams lends an uncredited hand inking the final four pages. Despite the mild break in consistency, their collective effort is frighteningly effective. This story was later reprinted in Masters of Terror #1. Other artists in this issue include Billy Graham, Gil Kane (art & cover) and Mort Lawrence (reprint). This is number 1 of 1 Journey into Mystery issues with Adams art and/or covers.
