Werewolf By Night #12

1972 was a good year for the horror genre at the House Of Ideas. In addition to Tomb Of Dracula, Werewolf By Night also made its debut. Although not as consistently good as TOD, Werewolf By Night featured some of the early work of the great Mike Ploog, whose style was the perfect fit for the book. This particular issue, from December, 1973, features a cover by the great John Romita, Sr., who didn't do a whole lot of horror work at this time. The interior art was by Gil Kane from a script by Marv Wolfman (how appropriate). This story is also reprinted in Marvel's Essential Werewolf By Night, which came out in 2005.
