Here's a dark, antebellum tale written by George Kashdan with artwork (pencils and inks) by the prodigious Lee Elias, who did tons of classic horror in the 1950s for Harvey's Black Cat comic. This tale easily demonstrates Elias still had is chops into the 70s and, not for nothing, drew an extremely attractive Cynthia, who was the witch co-host of stories from The Witching Hour; along with her less attractive (depending on tastes) witch sister, Mildred. Cynthia was the cool sis, too, speaking always in hipster jargon (a strange meld of beatnik and hippy talk). Oh, for those interested Hag Zebulah's snaky chant, "Obsurum per obscurius . . . Ignotium per Ignotius," is latin: "The obscure by means of the more obscure. The unknown by the more unknown." Who ever said comics weren't educational?From The Witching Hour No. 46, Sept. 1974.
