This is a Jack Cole masterpiece of style, which could veer from the placid and bucolic (page 3) to the Seventh Circle of Hell, represented by the depictions of the Claw’s realm on the next two pages. Cole, who was at heart a funny-pictures kind of cartoonist, used that comic exaggeration to great effect, even when it concerned more “serious” subject matter. (I use the word “serious” guardedly...none of this mayhem can be taken seriously.)
Different artists working for the Lev Gleason company drew and wrote the Claw stories for the length of his villainous career within the pages of Silver Streak and later Daredevil Comics. But, in my opinion, none of the artists had the flair for the cartoon-grotesque of such a comic book creation as did Cole. When he applied his considerable creativity to any feature, no one could top him.
