All right!! I finally get to identify one of the artists from Strange Terrors #6 (Jan.1953); originally published by St. John. Today's neat thriller features super-groovy artwork by the late Pete Morisi.
During his career, writer/artist Pete Morisi sometimes went by the pseudonym PAM, and he also spent much of his professional life working as a New York City Police officer, while moonlighting in the comics industry. He was best-known as the creator of the 1960s Charlton Comics series Peter Cannon ... Thunderbolt, a thoughtful superhero comic that contained some of the earliest respectful invocations of Eastern mysticism in American pop culture. Morisi passed away in 2003.
A small time magician whose ambition overshadows his better judgement, strikes a deal with the devil and pays the ultimate price in "Satan the Great".
Don't forget to hustle on back for tomorrows "Gal" Friday post to see which "scream queen" is featured this week. As for me, I'm taking in a courtesy showing of the new film, Red, starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren. "Red" is based on a DC Comics/Wildstorm miniseries written by Warren Ellis. I will post a review in a few days.
