TREEHOUSE OF HORROR shelters classic artists


I know this is late, but BART SIMPSON'S TREEHOUSE OF HORROR #11 (October 2005, Bongo Comics, $4.99) is a true classic. Published yearly, this Halloween goodie is just as entertaining as the special Halloween episodes that air on the Simpsons TV show. But this time there's a super-special treat! Bongo has commissioned some of the greatest masters of the horror comic genre to illustrate this year's batch of stories. Check this line-up out: Marv Wolfman, Gene Colan, Len Wein, Bernie Wrightson, Mark Schultz, John Severin, Angelo Torres and Al Williamson! Wow! This one has to be seen to be believed!

MARK.

SHULTZ.


Holy mackeral, I wish he would do more stuff... I dearly loved "Xenozoic Tales" aka Cadillacs & Dinosaurs. His pencils are the tightest I have ever seen in my whole life.

I think his art reminds me Al Williamson, but it's been so long since I saw it, I may be remembering it incorrectly.

I knew you wanted to know that.

Schultz's stuff is an incredible blend of all the good parts of Al Williamson, Wally Wood, Frank Frazetta, Al Feldstein and other greats... that guy sure can draw.
