  1. Ooh, this sounds like a good one. I could see this as story in one of Amicus’ anthology films from around this time as well. Peter Cushing could have played the rich old man! I have to agree, that page showing the the murder is fantastic. It breaks the traditional panel layout mold, but is somewhat understated than most of the “experimental” panels folks like Neal Adams and Steranko were doing back at the time.

    Great discussion!


  2. Great job, guys. Horror anthologies are not often my cup of tea, but as you attested, Colan and Goodwin did good work here. Besides, Ryan’s (justified) gushing over Colan is easy to listen to, and Herman’s enthusiasm is downright infectious (I know; it’s a bad year for that term).

    I will admit to being a little crestfallen that I did not get to hear my pulpy prose read aloud by one of the two voice actors that made the Fire and Water production of “Midnight and Three” great over on Knightcast. I understand, though. Following O’Neil with Entropy would be like following Shakespeare with a Police Academy sequel. One must have standards! Writing like a bargain basement Dashiell Hammett clone was fun anyway.
