Secrets of Sinister House - Alfredo Alcala!

More from the fine, Filipino artist, Alfredo Alcala (see last post). I like Alcala's work so much I had to offer a second helping. So many of the artist's panels are so finely detailed, and so very well composed. Just beautiful stuff. A fine story, too, from the pen of DC giant, Sheldon Mayer. The swell cover? Michael Kaluta. This comes from Secrets of Sinister House No. 6, August-September 1972.


  1. A beautifully drawn tale, well written, until the end. Why the need for the twist? It adds nothing to the story, but the journey there was worth it.

    There's an amazing amount of detail in the art, and a lot of backgrounds that could normally be skipped or simplified.

    Keep up the good work, Mykal!

  2. Brian: Thanks, buddy, I will. I describe the Alcala's strengths perfectly.

  3. Ooops, I mean YOU describe Alcala's strengths perfectly.

  4. cool tale ... nice ending ( reminds us of the "twist endings" of the Twilight Zone)...
