Girl Of the Moonpool
If I were a headshrinker--instead of someone who needs his own head shrunk--I'd have some things to say about "Girl Of the Moonpool," from Harvey Comics' Chamber of Chills #11, August 1952. I'd say something about sex, obsession, and diving in, literally, to a relationship. But, I'm not a shrink so forget I said anything.
This is a gorgeous piece of work by Bob Powell, probably inked by Howard Nostrand. This is the original art, which I culled from an Internet site a few years ago. Powell added the blue wash to indicate to the colorist where he wanted emphasis in the colors. I love the artwork in this story so much I printed it off, and bring it out to look at once in a while, just to see how good Powell could be.
