I wonder of the writer of the movie Goonies read this story as a kid. There's a pirate ship trapped in an underground chamber in that film too.
Wow! I've only seen Grandenetti in the Warren magazines, especially Eerie. Great layouts, great design, the Eisnery figures here are a suprise to me. Thanks!
Charles, as to whether the writer of Goonies read this I don't know, but the movie/comics connection is always close, so all I can say is, "could be!"
It's no surprise that Grandenetti here looks like Eisner, since as you said he worked for Eisner and ghosted for Eisner on countless SPIRIT's...who knows how many 'classic' SPIRIT stories were in fact all Grandenetti and not Eisner at all? Who influenced who? Indeed?I love this old style Eisner-esque Grandenetti. When he was doing all the 60's horror for Warren he was too loose and nightmarish for my sensibilities, like primal scream art, very visceral. He is a veritable artistic genius nonetheless.T'anks, Pap!
Apocolyte, people seem to have one opinion or another of Grandenetti, liking his work or hating it. I liked his Warren work. I wouldn't want to look at it all the time, but it was dramatic and so distinctive I could spot it from across the room.
