Creepy #44 - Mike Ploog art (1st pro work)


Creepy v1 #44, 1972 - Set in the 1700s, a pair of thieves use the mystical power of a severed hand to commit robberies. In his first professional work, Mike Ploog visualizes each scene in gory detail. His grasp of layout and pacing reveal a maturity usually reserved for more seasoned artists. With the exception of the well lit tavern scenes (see interior page below), most settings occur in deep shadows. Other artists in this issue include Richard Corben, Irv Docktor, Tom Sutton, Frank Bolle, Martin Salvador and Bill Barry. This is number 1 of 1 Creepy issues with Ploog art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ploog or Creepy issues. See also this blog's Ploog checklist or Top 10 Ploog comics.
