The Skin-Eaters (Web of Horror #1; Dec. 1969)





Web of Horror #1 was published by Major Publications in December 1969. They also published the humor series, Cracked and a host of men's adventure magazines. Web of Horror attempted to compete with the Warren line of black & white magazines, Creepy, Eerie and Vampirella, with limited success.

This tale of 'The Skin Eaters' is written by editor Terry Bisson and illustrated by Ralph Reese. The Catacombs is very grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story (and many, many more that will be coming your way in the months ahead). Yippee! Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belong to the original publisher and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.

Enjoy!

very interesting! Wally Wood's influence stands out. Ralph Reese improved greatly in the next couple of years - I really liked some of his work in the Marvel B & W line especially.

Thanks very much for posting this.
