Eerie v3 #10 - Neal Adams, Steve Ditko art


Eerie v3 #10, 1967 - In modern day Haiti, a plantation boss suspects his latest workers may not be among the living. This voodoo-themed mystery is drawn entirely in pencil. A few panels may lack clarity, but the artwork as a whole gains a dream-like textural quality. Neal Adams used this technique sporadically during this era, with mixed results. This story was later reprinted in >Eerie #125. In another tale, the barbarian Zahran makes a pact with death: deliver an endless supply of lives in exchange for immortality. Steve Ditko's scenes of strewn corpses and sorcery are splendidly drawn. Enhanced by shades of gray, his drawings still retain their graphic impact. This story was later reprinted in >Eerie v3 #21. Other artists in this issue include Gray Morrow and Joe Orlando. This is number 2 of 5 Eerie magazine issues with Adams art and/or covers and number 8 of 8 Eerie magazine issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints).
