The House of Mystery No. 182 Cover by Neal Adams

December 28, 2022|In General

If there were hundreds of covers like these by Adams I’d want to colour them all. Unfortunately, there are only a couple dozen or so he did for DC’s horror comics, and only a few of those have decent scans available on the web. So I take my time with these and only do one once in a while.

Putting the kids in peril was a very engaging motif, and when asked what happened to all those kids Adams joked, “They probably all died.”

New colour by me.
