Eerie v3 #35 - Frank Brunner, Mike Ploog art


Eerie v3 #35, 1971 - Imprisoned by Roman soldiers, the wizard Sidious grants himself immortality and plans his revenge in the future. This early work by Frank Brunner is meticulously drawn. His flowing brushwork pervades every panel, adding movement and texture to the story. The resulting nightmarish tale is one of his best bronze age efforts. Mike Ploog tells of a barbarian seeking a wizard's help in resurrecting his lover. The artist's rippling, viscous style seems to work well with this sword-wielding fantasy (see interior page). There is a lack of polish, however, in some of the faces and figures. Ploog's inexperience is partially offset by his enthusiasm. Other artists in this issue include Enrich Torres, John Cornell, Steve Englehart, Victor de la Fuente, Jerry Grandenetti, John Ayella and Sanho Kim. This is number 1 of 1 Eerie issues with Brunner art and/or covers and number 1 of 2 Eerie issues with Ploog art and/or covers.
