George Evans and the Green Hands of Terror!

EC Comics great George Evans drew the tremendously weird tale, The Green Hands of Terror for Fawcett's This Magazine is HAUNTED. I love how absolutely crazy and creepy the stories in these '50s horror comics are -- and finding examples as well drawn as this one is a thrill.

As usual, I've done some clean up work on scans found on the web. In this case I've lightened the (very) tanned paper, and darkened the blacks -- making for a better presentation of the art.

If you'd like to explore the many public domain comics out there for yourself, check out the Digital Comics Museum. A word of warning, though -- be prepared to sift through a lot of junk to find the gems.
